Description ronnystandtke 2007-08-13 18:29:51 UTC
If a HTML file contains apostrophes (') Writer imports them verbatim 
without mapping them to real apostrophes.
I will attach a test file...
If you open this file in a browser of your choice you will see the 
string: 'test'
If you open this file in OOo Writer you will see this string: 'test'

Reassigned to ES.
Comment 3 eric.savary 2007-08-14 08:39:34 UTC
"&apos" may be supported by many browsers it is not a valide HTML entity.


Please use a plain text ' or ' instead.

The 'apos' is a standard html/xhtml entity, see
Comment 6 eric.savary 2007-08-14 10:30:31 UTC
XHTML yes, HTML (4.0) not.

Requalifying as enhancement.

Now using v3.2, unfortunately, I still have to manually sed many html files
before opening them with OOo because of this issue...
