This time it is more strict. Unforunately, I use dbms_xmlparser to parse some RSS feeds and they contain a lot of these codes. Replacing them via an XSLT does not work, they get back in again, because this package translates ' back to "'". If I use ` in the xslt, it works fine (but shows all apostrophes like this, which is hardly noticeable for end users).
