[wp-hackers] WordPress Uses "Wrong" Apostrophe in Blog Title

It's implied but not explicitly stated, and last time I checked,  
standards don't work off implications... wouldn't it make sense that  
the W3C would want ', as implemented by the browser, to  
correctly resolve to the right curly apostrophe?

As it is implemented in most browsers (where implemented), it  
resolves to XML equivalent of a standard apostrophe, &#39. That  
doesn't mean it's how it should work, just what the current  
equivalent is.

Just a thought. ;)
