I think we are misunderstanding each other, could you provide an
example of such a gettext string?

My point is: stats_tags.wml and legal.wml are using a different
'format' from all other gettexted template wml files and require
different escaping for translators. To me this seems unwanted and easy
to fix.

In the mean time I worked around the problem by using the ‘proper’
Unicode punctuation character in stats.nl.po.
