I was not really aware of this problem until now (mainly using Firefox) but indeed, I could reproduce this on IE8. It appears that this was already a problem in IE7. This is what I found as explanation:
"The named character reference ' (the apostrophe, U+0027) was introduced in XML 1.0 but does not appear in HTML. Authors should therefore use ' instead of ' to work as expected in HTML 4 user agents."
So, Internet Exploder is more correct than Firefox?
