When I type a single-quote (apostrophe) character when composing mail,

an acute accent character, like this ´.   The double-key press makes
it seem like I´m in some sort of character composing mode without
wanting to be.

I´ve checked my language settings in Evolution and KDE, and checked my
keyboard type.  I´m set to American English for all with UTF-8
character encoding.  In fact, as soon as I type the word with the
acute in it, the spell checker wants to fix it, and does it properly
(replaces it to a word with an apostrophe).  Note that there are two
offending words in this paragraph.

I have a Microsoft Natural keyboard and am running an up-to-date
Fedora Core 3 on i686, KDE 3.3 and Evolution 2.0.2.

If anyone can help, please let me know.

The problem may be that you are in Evil HTML Mode:
   Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8

In text mode, single-quotes are just that: plain old ASCII.
Here are some examples: ''''''''''''''''''''
