The question marks are a reult of Microsoft's SmartQuotes feature - it
replaces the straight quotes with direction quotes (like TeX does for ``

OO.o has an option to enable processing Microsoft SmartQuotes - I
suspect that's the setting that's giving the trouble.

A Pope has a Water Cannon.                               It is a Water Cannon.
He fires Holy-Water from it.                        It is a Holy-Water Cannon.
He Blesses it.                                 It is a Holy Holy-Water Cannon.
He Blesses the Hell out of it.          It is a Wholly Holy Holy-Water Cannon.
He has it pierced.                It is a Holey Wholly Holy Holy-Water Cannon.
He makes it official.       It is a Canon Holey Wholly Holy Holy-Water Cannon.
