Why is my spacing after a '," and - too big?

When I type my punctuation marks have more space than normal. It looks like
2-3 extra spaces and doesn't look right.

Now that is weird. When I did a copy and paste it pasted perfectly normal.
But what it looks like in my Word document is this:

Seven that' s the time we dine at seven.
We' ll be sharing

What is going on? I looked at the print preview and it still looks the
same. Too much space after the puntuation marks. But why did it copy and
paste not like what it looks like in Word but what is correct spacing?

At a guess, Word has converted the apostrophes to MS Mincho or something,
which generates the weird spacing.

Thanks. How did this happen and how do I change it normal spacing?

If I knew why it happens, I'd be a lot happier. I do know that selecting all
the text and pressing Ctrl+Spacebar (which should reapply the Default
Paragraph Font) doesn't help, but if you select text on both sides of the
problem area and select the correct font from the Font list, this may help.
