In a lot of technical material, it's very common for items to be introduced and listed in point form, for example:
- Point 1
- Point 2
I've lost count the number of times I've seen this instead;
- How can I hear you
- When you offended me with that semicolon?
So please remember, hold down that shift key when pressing the button that has the colon/semicolon.
I found this site of a lovely man who is doing a good thing for the apostrophe, The Apostrophe Preservation Society.
