Thanks for the response.

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

wanting to be.
I=B4ve checked my language settings in Evolution and KDE, and checked my
keyboard type.  I=B4m 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=3Dutf-8

In text mode, single-quotes are just that: plain old ASCII.
