' and Internet Explorer

filed under: @ 12:05:43

It's old news, I know, but it's also useful to have a link to the complete ISO Latin-1 Character Set for Internet Explorer 4.0 and later to avoid seeing an ugly ' instead of the intended apostrophe.

For whoever does not know what I'm talking about, Internet Explorer does not support the ' entity added to the XHTML 1.0 specifications (since ' is an XML entity), which means that insted of showing an apostrophe it shows just '

Use ' whenever you need an apostrophe and everything will be all right.
