Even under Linux, the endash and the appostrophe appear wrong in the bookmarks. 

Only in the past year I have learnt how to get good bookmarks with \pdfstringdefDisableCommands. 
I would suggest using \textendash and some \apostrophe in the titles and then perhaps 

Heiko may know something better.
