In your library: using “smart quotes” instead of "straight"

Since I kinda prefer typographic punctuation, I was wondering if doing that in your music library, too, could bring up any problems I haven't thought of yet -- like iPod might not support it, or maybe Windows can't show them correcty…

Here is an example:

“Summer’s Almost Gone”

instead of

"Summer's Almost Gone"

I know it's way easier and less complicated using the regular straight quotes and avoiding unnecessary mistakes, and I can't see any reasonable advantages apart from style, but I just had to think about it. And since you rarely see people using typographic punctuation, I'm curious what you guys think and if anyone else has been considering.


PS: I'm on a Mac, and I use iTunes.
PPS: And, yes, it doesn't really look good with exactly all typefaces (see this forum), but it does in iTunes (Lucida).
