When you post a Poll for some peculiar reason apostrophes appear as strange symbols.

For example I’m a student, appears as I’m a student,

Why is this? Is it some kind of bug? And seen as polls can’t be edited to ‘I am’ you’re stuck with it.
It makes reading the poll options awkward and confusing.
Any fixes for this?

This sounds like you need to reset your region, language, and date settings on your device.
Doing so, you may be asked from your device questions like, which English you need to use and the keyboard type QWERKY and so-forth that you with to use.

This is a bug and has been for as long as I can remember. It also goes funny when you use an ampersand (&). If you link to the poll I can ask someone to edit it for you.
