You're on the wrong list - this question doesn't appear to have any
relevance to XML Schema.
 
An apostrophe is often represented in an XML document as &apos; 
 
When the XML parser hands it to an application, it will normally decode it
and give the application a regular apostrophe (').
 
If you're seeing &apos; (six characters) this might be because the XML
representation has been read without decoding, or it might have been
double-escaped (as &amp;apos;) in the XML file. Impossible to tell without
much more detail.

Subject: Special Characters In Output


Hi,
 
I am fetching an address data into a self service screen.One of the lines in
the addresses has got a special character quote.It is displaying back as
&apos;
 
How do you handle this data format change ? Do I need to put in a style
sheet to format this data ?
 
Regards,
Sudhamsh.
