Fonts in Photoshop cc 2014 don't look like they do on the web or in FontViewer.  In the example below, Font 'A' is what the font looks like online and in my local FontViewer program.  Font 'B' is what it looks like in Photoshop.  Notice the apostrophe.  In font 'A' the apostrophe is a straight verticle line (more or less).  However, whenthe font is used in Photoshop, the apostrophe is curved or hooked shape.  Can anyone explain this?  Every single font that I expect to have the straight verticle apostrophe displays a curved or hooked one instead.  This happens for every font; not just one or two.  And yes, I have tried turning Ordinals off/On.

It appears to have the primes, but when I tested, they convert to quotes. Looking further, I found that you can type primes in...

Looking further, I found that you can type primes in Photoshop if you go to Preferences > Type  and uncheck "Use Smart Quotes".
