Oh boy, you'll have fun reading about this in the bug threads:

#16292 -
         info docs now contain single straight quotes instead of `'

#13131 -
         Allow curly quotes to be found by searching for straight quotes?

#16439 -
         Highlighting of strings within Info buffers

#13228 -
         Request for highlighting back-quote/quote pair notation


(Info+ can at least help by highlighting quoted names etc.
