Using regular expression, you would first search for:
"([A-Za-z])'([A-Za-z])"

Open in new window

and replace with
$1&apos;$2

Open in new window

After that, simply replace all remaining ' with "

HTH,
Dan

Assuming you have your xml in a string called xmlString:
xmlString = Regex.Replace(xmlString, @"([A-Za-z])'([A-Za-z])", "$1&apos;$2");
xmlString = Regex.Replace(xmlString, @"'", "\"");

Open in new window

You can do a regular replace for the second line, but looks cooler this way :)

That's what the solution does.

The first searches for all sequences of type letter'letter and changes them to &apos;

The second changes the remaining ' to ". Or it should :) If the escape is not needed, then the second line should be:

xmlString = Regex.Replace(xmlString, @"'", """);

Open in new window
