Left and right single quotation (’ and ‘) are not converted correctly (or not recognized). Encode and decode fails.

Reproduce code:
$str = "Guide de l?utilisateur";
echo htmlentities($str);

Expected result:
Guide de l’utilisateur

Actual result:
Guide de l´utilisateur

This's most likely due to my error.
Assigning it to me.

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at and the instructions on how to report
a bug at

You must specify the name of the code set in which the 
string is represented when you are passing strings 
encoded in an encoding other than ISO-8859-1.

echo htmlentities($str, 0, "UTF-8");
