Thanks Dorian but it is not single or double quote on the keyboard.
I tried it but did not work. That text is extracted from my pdf files and I think it is different formatted.

It worked for me when I simply cut and pasted your characters. When I typed ' and ", the values were 0. So try cutting and pasting them from your source to ensure they're correct.
