Dennis's post is now on the main webpage! Yeah!

Note that there is an issue with &rsquo;

Which allows for a quick Apache CMS debugging lesson.

The markdown for that part of is this:

  <div id="impact" class="grid_6">
                       <h4>The Apache Blogs</h4>
                       {% for e in planet.list %}
                       <div><h5><a class="entryTitle" href="{{ e.url }}">{{
e.title }}</a></h5>
                        <p>{{ e.content|safe|truncatewords_html:30 }}</p>
                       <hr><br />
                       {% endfor %}


{{ e.title }} escapes the character entity in the title as "&amp;rsquo;"

From we see that this means
that e.title was already escaped with & replaced by &amp;

Am I correct that this extra escape needs to be removed in either the building of planet.list
in the main apache site's or {{ e.title }} modified on index.mdtext?

Otherwise blog author's have to know not to use those characters.

And there was a question about foreign language posts. I think these will encounter similar

 There might be ways to get that working, but I am content for now.
