    "Smart quotes" in MS Word for Mac
    I've recently switched from Windows to Mac and OS X. Most of my work is word processing. In MS Word 2008 for Mac, I haven't been able to find a way to switch from straight quotation marks (like this " ") to "smart quotes" ("curly quotes") that will curve by default toward the right or left at the start or end of a word or sentence.

    Can anyone point me to the instructions for changing the default style of quotation marks and apostrophes?
