[Ach] Checking for copy/pastability from the PDF

PDFs create issues…

May of the quotes get mangled in the PDF. Seems that 'foo' become ’foo’ (incorrect curly quotes).
While these are typographically correct as an apostropohe (like in a possesive case) they do break command line strings and config lines that are meant to be copy/pasteable. Well, you can still copy them, but they break the command or config file you paste them in.

Anything we can do to prevent this general substitution to happen during PDF generation so that it only happens on body text, but not on commands/configs (stuff in monospaced typeface)?

Best regards
