&apos: why does this keep appearing?

Hi all. don't know if anyone else has experienced this but I keep encountering &apos: in what should be plain text. It replaces an apostrophe for some reason. Looks like a bit of HTML code to me. Any ideas as to the cause and how to correct it.

No one else had this or maybe a poor explanation by me.

It's down to poor/faulty HTML coding by the webpage designer AFAIK.

Can you give us a link to one of the webpages? then we can see if it happens for all of us and not just you.

I will try again. On my screen it says "Ebay one of the UK&apos:s largest shopping destinations" When I paste it here it reads as it should as you can see.
