Dear All,<br><br>I am typesetting a collection of short stories with the Adobe Minion Pro fonts I've bought with this purpose in mind. I'm using the MinionPro package from CTAN , and have set up the font files and all the necessary auxiliary files exactly as described in the documentation with that wonderful package.
<br><br>Now everything works fine, except for one niggly-naggly little problem. Sometimes an apostrophe is used, such as in "She'd" or "Don't". Of course this literary practice is frowned upon in formal documents, but in fiction it is often unavoidable, as it is in many instances in this collection. The problem I encounter is that the kerning of that apostrophe is wrong when using MinionPro. It looks like pdfLaTeX has typeset - for example - "shed" and squeezed in an apostrophe as an afterthought, rather than typesetting "she'd", as it should do.
<br><br>Now I can of course experiment a bit with manual kerning, and come up with the right numbers to go with the \kern commands before and after the apostrophe, but is there a way to fix things documentwide, preferably in my preamble? Can I set a specific kerning for the apostrophe when used this way, without having to hand-fix every single instance? And can I do this without messing up the quotation marks, which in my source file are designated by the exact same symbol of course. Also, it would be highly preferable to be able to fix things in the source file I already have rather than having to go through 80,000+ lines of LaTeX source code in order to replace any apostrophe used in, for example "don't" or "you'd" with \apostrophe while leaving the quotation marks or a use like "in the 'eighties" intact. I know one could use regular expressions, but still...
<br><br>It may or may not be interesting to know that my document has been typeset in LaTeX, using the Memoir class by Peter Wilson.<br><br>Thanks for your help.<br><br>Kind regards,<br>Yuri Robbers.<br><br>
