Edit Book: Smarten Punctuation handles years and measurements incorrectly

Bug Description

Version: 1.24 (64 bit)
OS: Win7

When using the 'smarten punctuation' tool on text such as '60s, it converts to an opening single quote mark instead of a closing single quote mark. When encountering foot/inches measurements such as 5'6" the single quote that is used is also facing the wrong direction as above (and iirc these should more properly be left as straight quotes rather than converted, though that might vary by style manual).
