flash_obj.render(use_js=False) uses HTML entity "apos"

Reported by: pitrou Owned by: albertov
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.1b1
Component: TurboGears Version: 2.0b5
Severity: normal Keywords:


When rendering the flash object in non-Javascript mode, the rendered HTML contains the non-standard "'" entity (in place of the apostrophe). It isn't recognized by some MSIE versions.

I've found some info about it here:  http://nedbatchelder.com/blog/200703/random_html_factoid_no_apos.html

I don't understand why the apostrophe has to be escaped at all (the flash message is rendered as the text child of an HTML element, not as an attribute), but if it should be, apparently "'" should be the replacement rather "'".
