Cross-platform Issues

As we port Frontier to Windows, we're learning more about which features are cross-platform, and which are not.

Avoid Mac-only tokens in scripts
Instead of using special chars, use the ASCII equivs
Curly quotes, keys for !=, <=, >=, etc.
Use strings instead of filespecs
We'll correctly handle Mac file paths on Windows and vice versa.
Other issues?
We'll hear from Doug and Bob as we go forward.
