#10942 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

When used in an e-mail, apostrophes should not be encoded

WordPress sends e-mail as plain text (as far as I know), and therefore special characters should not be encoded as HTML entities, but displayed as-is.

A French user has recently reported that WP does encode at least one character: the straight apostrophe ('). My guess is that it is to prevent any breakage further down the road, but in this case it makes the string hard to read.
