Well, it's just that despite the existence of the separate "geresh" and
"gershayim" characters in Unicode, I've never seen anyone actually using them.
Everyone I've seen uses the normal ASCII single-quote and double-quote
characters respectively, and expect those to look fine in Hebrew fonts - and
they do.

They reason people don't use the special unicode characters is probably that
there is usually no convenient method to enter them with the keyboard.

You're right that it should also be checked what happens with these special
characters - the spell-checker shouldn't break such words, and it should accept
them even though the dictionary contains words with the ASCII
quotes/double-quote, not with geresh/gershayim. This should perhaps become a
separate bug, if it doesn't work properly.
