An apostrophe doesn't appear as one, &apos appears instead. Look will do an apostrophe below.

NoodleStroodle Thu 21-Jun-07 14:10:13

What is tech up too?

Has someone slipped them something this morning?

Mercy Thu 21-Jun-07 14:10:15

Can you not see what we can see?

When we type an apostrophe, what we are seeing on the screen is

" &apos; "

I will type one now
