[resolved] double quotation marks in post titles (4 posts)

    I am currently having trouble putting double quotation marks in a post's title to emphasize a direct quote from a movie. The trouble occurs when validating the XHTML because the HTML entities are also placed in the title attribute which in turn confuses the W3C validator.

    Any ideas for a work around besides removing the double quotation marks all together?

    TIA

    “Where the hunters are hunted” is the title.

    Well, the W3C Validator seems to have no problems with the HTML character entities in the page's title. See here: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http://justine.baxitek.com/?p=10

    It has other problems with the page, but none of them relate to the double quotes.
