How to use curly quotes in monospaced block?

Mark S
I have this block in asciidoctor:

----
myapp/myapp.rs      # executable
myapp/myapp_test.rs # tests
----

It correctly formats as monspaced and preserves the spaces so that the #'s line up.

However, I want the word "executable" to be in double curly quotes and can't figure out how do do it. Is it possible?

I see at least two possibilities to add (typographic) curly quotes:

  1. use unicode characters
  2. enable macros as described in AsciiDoc Writers's Guide: Inline pass macro and explicit substitutions
The two examples below will lead to the same output:

Unicode variant:

----
myapp/myapp.rs      # “executable”
myapp/myapp_test.rs # tests
----
Macro variant:
[subs=+macros]
----
myapp/myapp.rs      # pass:quotes["`executable`"]
myapp/myapp_test.rs # tests
----

Thank you. I tried both and in both cases asciidoctor-pdf produced a blank space where the quotes should be. I think this is due to the default fonts. I'll read the docs on theming to see if I can set fonts that have the curly quotes.
