apostrophe's

I am reading a book purchased from kobo, converted to mobi, and back to epub on my Nook Color. It puts in little squares in place of apostrophe's. I had to switch to reading on my iphone because it was so annoying. Any help?

The (non-declared) code page (character set ) was not guessed correctly
Read this AND the tool tips for the setting
http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq.html#id15
(try cp1252)

Thankyou. I don't understand though. When I read this:
There are two aspects to this problem:

Knowing the encoding of the source file: calibre tries to guess what character encoding your source files use, but often, this is impossible, so you need to tell it what encoding to use. This can be done in the GUI via the Input character encoding field in the Look & Feel section. The command-line tools all have an --input-encoding option.

I can get to the look and feel section but then don't find an input character incoding field. I don't know what cp1252 means.

It is in the Conversion section: Common Options: Look and feel (there is more than one with that name )

It's leftover from the good old days: DOS Code Page 1252 which was mainly used in part of Europe

Ah. I just saw the look and feel in the interface menu.

Relieved to find there is a pop up with cp1252 on it.

Thankyou. I've got it fixed now.
