When a post is made using APP, and the item includes apostrophes escaped using the ‘'’ XML escape, the XML escape sequences are copied through verbatim into the generated HTML.
Unfortunately, ' isn’t a valid HTML entity; it’s only valid for XML, and most WordPress themes aren’t strict XML.
So, the APP code needs to unescape the incoming XML before writing it to the database.
(This would be a bug report, but I don’t seem to have permission to post bug reports.)
