I'm wondering why you want to use handwriting in a document about a
typesetting system.  An allusion to the pen the TW logo? :)

I recommend to add \usepackage{upquote} to the preamble. 

This package replaces typographic quotes (which look like commas) in
verbatim environments and in arguments of \verb.

  /quoteleft  ==> /grave
  /quoteright ==> /quotesingle

I prefer this because you have to use these quotes on the command line
and within programs anyway.

On page 33 of manual-r39-1.pdf I get (pasted from AR):

   Ctrl+Õ    Go to Source

but I suppose that it should be:

   Ctrl+'    Go to Source

Is the correct character used in the source file?

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
