    How do I insert a ' without getting a validation error

    Ian Beresford Level 1

      If I include text such as it's the ' gives me a validation error. Is there a way to use this character without creating an issue?

       

      Thanks for any assistance.

          You are probably pasting text from Microsoft Word, which uses a non-standard character for a "smart" (curly) apostrophe. Normally, if you paste text from Word into Design view, Dreamweaver will convert the apostrophe into an HTML entity that gets rid of the problem. Presumably, you're pasting into Code view, or the quotes are coming from a form. If they're coming from a form, you will need to use server-side code to find and replace the non-standard character.
