In original message, I saw opening-quote and closing-quote (whereas
povray only wants straight-quote). Can it be related to editor mode or
something like that on Mac ?

If I was to see the same thing on my language, hitting:
#include "foo.inc"
would turns into
#include «foo.inc»
(which is also a no-no for povray)

(yep, I'm French, quotes are different) (and I have no Mac).

The issue is not the fonts, but the encoding (utf8 ?) generated by the "
key. Some smart layer is trying to make that an English text.
