Bug Description

Calibre Ver 0.8.50 running on Windows Vista

When converting a book from RTF to MOBI, an italicized apostrophe is changed to an italicized f.

For example:

RTF Text:
I said, "Flora, baby, I'll be there. I’ll be there.” (where the 2nd I'll be there is italicized)

converts to MOBI as:
  I said, "Flora, baby, I'll be there. Ifll be there." (where the 2nd Ifll be there is italicized)

Changing the component for this bug.

Works for me, please attach your file as RTF can be created in lots of ways.

Process Steps:
1. Import attached file into Calibre by clicking "Add Books".
2. "Convert Books" creates MOBI containing error.

Calibre Ver 0.8.55 has worsened the error; MOBI now looks like:

I said, "Flora, baby, I'll be there. Ifll be there.h (where the 2nd Ifll be
there is italicized & the final " is replaced with an un-italicized h)
