Using Calc, a spreadsheet created in Excel 2003 is opened.  A column within
the spreadsheet is formatted as Number, General.  The user is trying to
enter number of inches (27.5’ S/W Pin) using the apostrophe to indicate
inches.  They are using Times New Roman as the font.  The apostrophe is
showing as a curly apostrophe, but the user wants it to be straight. (27.5'
S/W Pin) (unfortunately these both show as straight apostrophes here).  

I tried changing the font, but that didn't work.  I've tried changing the
column to text, but that didn't work either.  Is there a way to change curly
apostrophes to straight ones?
