  Quotation Marks Problem with POVRay3_7_Unofficial on Mac Mavericks

I've installed povray3_7_unofficial on my Mavericks mac laptop. When I open a
new file and try to use the double quotes key on my keyboard, I get:



After saving the file as demo.pos, when I try to render the file, I get this
error message.

"/Users/davidarnold/Documents/temp/demo.pov" line 1 Parse Error: Illegal
character in input file, value is d2.

Now if I create this code in BBEdit, save the file as demo.pov, then open it in
POVRay3_7_Unofficial, it looks like this:

include "colors.inc"
include "stones.inc"
And it renders just fine.

Why isn't the quotation key on my Mavericks Mac keyboard giving me the correct
quotation symbol in POVRay3_7_Unofficial? I also tried using Courier and
Helvetica, to no avail or difference.

David.
