The spelling &apos; is correct (and &apost; would be wrong).

The reason why you see &apos; and not ' is in your browser: it does not 
recognize the entity reference &apos; (which is not part of HTML 4.01 but 
defined in XHTML).

However, as discussed in April, using &apos; is pointless (it has no benefit 
over using the apostrophe ' as such), and we have been told that this has 
been fixed in the development version.
