Apostrophe Chokes XHTML Validator...

My apology for asking for a direct response as I have
not made the effort to subscribe to the newsletter but
for what may be a simple one-off solution that I am at
the moment quite ignorant of...

The XHTML Validator at http//validator.w3.org/check/referer
does not like apostrophes using either iso-8859-1 or 
UTF-8 encoding. I have also tried to replace the literal 
use of an apostrophe with the character entity &#39; 
but to no avail.

Oddly, the text matter using the apostrophes did not
choke the validator until recently.

Can somebody please post the solution to the
subscribers of this newsletter and also cc me so
I will be able to learn how to resolve this issue?
