Peter and Joel have the answer exactly right.

But I'd point out that it's also very important to use the right editor 
for writing your programs.  In order to get those curly quotes, you 
probably used a word processor to write the file, then saved it as text. 
  Use a good text editor, and you're much less likely to have it change 
your keystrokes out from under you.

Similarly when posting here, use text mode in your email, not html.

here's what the html you posted looks like:

<div dir=3D"ltr"><div><div>Hello,<br><br></div>I have the following program=
  that employs the dcm2jpg.exe software:<br><br>import os<br>os.system(=E2=
