Subject: the apstrophe problem in wiktionary
Original description:
[[wikt:fr:-n’t]] and [[wikt:en:-n't]] are articles about the same. But the bot see different articles. So is there a way that the interwiki.py script in the -wiktionary mode accepts and looks for <'> or <’> at the moment <’> or <'> is used??

I was asked by User:V85 to find a solution for that.
... see http://de.wiktionary.org/wiki/Benutzer\_Diskussion:Melancholie\#Interwikis
The whole thing with those apostrophes is disputed, though.
... please read http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/User\_talk:Robert\_Ullmann\#Probleme\_with\_apostrophes\_.27\_and\_.E2.80.99

My bot is currently accepting both typographical variants of apostrophes and is ignoring some other typographical differences as well.

See http://de.wiktionary.org/w/index.php?title=User:MelancholieBot/interwiki.py&diff=1025353&oldid=1010497 for a potential patch.
