Apostrophe in title has its ampersand escaped

The apostrophe in my titles, e.g., Jeffery's, are escaped.



Title:Apostrophe in title has it's ampersand escaped» Apostrophe in title has its ampersand escaped


Update. I had fixed a couple of these ampersands in dlr/EDIT, but when I re-edited an object in WMS edit, the ampersand was escaped again going back into Fedora. See "Jeffery's 2nd Book Test: Galen Book 2 Example Test Again" rutgers-lib:24260. In the WMS display the apostrophes look OK, but they are escaped by some process as they pass into XML. See also "Jeffery's 7th Book", a new object created, edited in dlr/EDIT, and re-edited in WMS. The escaped ampersand appeared also when the selected object was viewed as XML before the WMS edit.


The same thing happens in the Subject (Name) field when I input this text:
Jane's Flying Metadata

and it displays in xml as:
Jane's test

and on the form it displays as:
Jane's Flying Metadata (Firm)


Status:active» fixed

Fixed, but need test for both regular edit and fedora edit. -YY

Please test this and close the bug.



Status:fixed» closed

This looks good now! The ' entity is working for both new objects and in edits. In edits, the old escaped entities are quietly fixed.
