Here is a request for a small adjustment in five English strings.

Almost all places in LibreOffice, straight apostrophes (', ASCII code 39
decimal) are used in "n't" endings like "don't" in the English strings. It
is used 209 places in version 4.4.

But there are five places where the character ’ (windows code page 1252
code 146 decimal) is used instead:

In the font used by the LibreOffice user interface in Windows, this looks a
bit odd.

It is in the following places (wether the single quotes go through this
mail system or are changed into the correct apostrophes, I don't know. But
the search above will show all five places in any case):
Don’t _split table over pages
Don’t _split table over pages
Your changes will be lost if you don’t save them.
_Don’t Save
Don’t _split table over pages

Yes, this is a small thing, but nevertheless I think it should be changed
for the overall polished impression of LibreOffice.

Especially because one of the strings is very often shown to the user,
namely the "_Don’t Save".
