We're getting reports that the char ' is displayed in the widget gallery as 'em. For instance, declaring the widget name as this in widget.xml:
[...] <metadata> <name>It's a widget</name> [...]
will cause the widget name to be displayed as "It'ems a widget". Is there any way of escaping the ' char so that it works fine everywhere? Or do you guys at Y! need to fix this issue in the Widget Gallery widget? Any suggestions to how we'd go about using the ' char in the widget title?
FYI, the ' char works fine within the widget, it is displayed properly on the About page for instance.
The submission backend may convert characters in incoming strings to entities before storing them. They will get sent out to the Widget double-escaped. We'll also sanity check the entity conversion in the Gallery Widget to make sure this isn't a client-side bug. If you see a specific instance of mangled strings from your Widget on display in the Gallery Widget, let us know the specific app info and we'll correct it right away.
