Can't make a name with an apostrophe in it

Observed: I cannot type the single-quote/apostrophe (') character in either name field

Expected: I can use apostrophes in flippin' D&D character names -- how else will I make my Drizzt Do'urden clone?

Workaround: Copy and paste a (’) character from another application

Characters are saved to disk using the first name only (so I assume TA are filtering invalid filename letters.  I think maybe the filtering is too restrictive since ' is fine on Windows.    

Also you can't currently have two characters with the same first name.

If limitations to character's names are coming (indirectly) from file system limitations, this is definitively a bad design
Character's names should only be limited by Unicode (and to a reasonable length).

If a player wants to name his character "Öl’drûn" or "エビ" it has to be possible; that's 21th century, guys ...
