      Description

      If you use the ' (apostrophe) character in the CMS in the richttext editor, it will be converted into the

      '

      entity, which does not work in IE8. This causes IE8 users to see this entity and not '.
      If they edit & publish the document again, the entity will change into

      's

      after which all browsers render it incorrectly.

      To reproduce:

      • build Hippo 7.9 from the archetype and add in essentials the blog feature.
      • Open the CMS in IE8
      • Change a blogposting to contain ' in the content and publish the blog post
      • View the blogpost in IE8, it will not render the ' correctly
      • Edit the blogpost in the CMS again using IE8, add some text
      • save and publish the blogpost again
      • view the blogpost in any browser
      • Now the ' character is changed into
        's

        and no browser displays it as ' anymore

      TODO:
      When richtext field is edited for the second time skip xml codes for &, ", ', < and > such as

      &apos;

      , etc.
