I fixed it!=20

I found an interesting trick on stack-overflow.=20

What I ended up doing was=20

mystr.force_encoding("BINARY").gsub!(0x92.chr, "'")

I did have to open the problem file in a hex editor to verify the hex =
character that was causing issues, but forcing the encoding in the MRI =
seemed to do the trick.=20

I wonder why macruby didn't have this sort of issue though.=20
