IE 7 and 8 display apostrophe as &apos

IE 7 and 8 display you&apos instead of you've.  Is there a setting that can get the apostrophe to display correctly?

Larry_Brown--The ability of Firefox to interpret &apos is explained, sortof, in the first link I offered.  IE requires HTML and &apos is not valid HTML.

Larry_Brown--If you are seeing this on a site someone else coded, the fault is with the coding. IE does not accept the coding &apos

Not much you can do other than contact the coder.
Or is this happening on several sites?

Thanks.  It's happening at one site for sure.  I'll forward your information on to them.  The curious thing is Firefox does not have any problems and shows the apostrophe.

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to add that if you try to pass an apostrophe to IE through a javascript statement either as ' or ' it will error, use ’ instead.
