Python 3 uses wcsftime() to format a timestamp and decodes tzname[0] and tzname[1] from UTF-8. The problem is that both methods format the quote differently: U+0092 for wcsftime("%Z") and U+2019 in tzname[1].

>>> time.strftime("%Z")
'Paris, Madrid (heure d\x92été)'

>>> time.tzname
('Paris, Madrid', 'Paris, Madrid (heure d\u2019été)')

See also issue #10653.

Isn't this a duplicate of #10653?  In any case, this looks like a windows only issue, so I cannot move it further.  Would be interested in resolution, though.  Thanks for making me nosy.
