      I have a mapping:

      inoremap <buffer> ' '<Esc>:call SmartQuote(1)<CR>a

      which "does the right thing" when a single-quote is inserted. That is, it either creates a set of matching typographically correct single-quotes, or it inserts an apostrophe. It works fine in English.

      When I switch the keyboard to Hebrew (set rl keymap=hebrew) this mapping no longer works. It looks like the reason is that the "single quote" is remapped to "comma" (which is correct). But pressing the correct remapped single-quote key (w) does not fire the mapping.

      It seems to me this is incorrect behavior; but in the meantime can anyone suggest a reasonable workaround?
