Back-quotes in Sage or Python

I have been cutting and pasting some of the examples in a pdf of William's new book, Sage for power users. All the single quotes paste as back-quotes (`) rather than single quotes ('). Is there some way to tell Sage (or Python) that these are equivalent?

I don't know if the back-quotes are intentional or an artifact of my pdf viewer.
