when using the following example I get (probably not surprisingly) overlapping between single quotes and the letter at the beginning of a word (for example starting with A) or the end of a word (for example ending with f). Since I have to use the single quotes in this form quite a lot, how can I avoid this? Is is only font specific? If so, how can I avoid that with Adobe Garamond? Which options do I have to choose?

I am using XeLaTeX.

Thanks!

Not related to your problem but simply an advice: Don't load xunicode before fontspec. Actually you don't need to load at all fontspec and xltxtra will do it anyway. –  Ulrike Fischer May 26 '11 at 10:57

It seems that the font lacks proper kerning pairs for the RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK.

With

\usepackage{newunicodechar}
\newunicodechar{’}{\/’}

I get decent results.
