In Office 2007, I can't figure out how to stop word from replacing a normal
apostrophe into a smart apostrophe or whatever the office programmers are
calling it nowadays. It's replacing ASCII 0039 ' with ASCII 0146 ’. How can I
prevent word from making this change? I've tried setting the auto correct
options to replace ASCII 0039 ' with ASCII 0039 ' and it doesn't work.

Have you disabled the appropriate check box in the "AutoFormat As You Type"
dialog (wherever that may now be)?
