The PDF printer that is installed with Adobe Acrobat has a bug. It does not parse " 's right. You can see this example in Firefox when the title of a website has a " in it. Print to PDF and Firefox passes the " 's to it.

You can actually make the distiller parse files on the system.

I have tried to contact adobe support and they stated that they have submitted the report to someone but it has been a week and I have not heard anything back.

I have added to the Firefox bug tracker information about it also:

I contacted adobe but also posted a forum post:

You can get the Distiller to input script files by making a tile with a filename in it and quotes.

Workarounds

Create a greasemonkey script that turns the quotes into something that Adobe PDF printer can parse.
