Ubuntu & Precision M6300 - colors not right

Is there a color management program available to change overall RGB values?

Stylized quote marks and converted ellipsis show up as a few garbage characters, somewhat hampering easy readability of the feed content.

I fixed this, and here's how—since this theoretically affects any Windows application run under Wine that has to render HTML encoded in UTF-8.
