Appearance font setting drops quotation marks (') in font family name

Steps to reproduce

I have a font whose family name contains an apostrophe, i.e. the single quotation mark symbol '. The font is called Suisse Int’l (free trial).

When I add this font in Options/Appearance/Font, it shows up in the dropdown menu, and I am able to save the selection. I checked appearance.json and it shows that “Suisse Int’l” is correctly saved.

Expected result

Obsidian finds the font family on my system and displays it in the UI.

Actual result

It seems that the code that processes this setting drops the quotation mark. When I close and reopen Options/Appearance/Font, the family name shows up as “Suisse Intl” without the single quotation mark instead of “Suisse Int’l”, and it says that it cannot find the font family on my system, hence does not display the font.
