Hyperspin databases issues

Can anyone explain why the xml database files have issues with certain symbols. For example the Super Nintendo xml file shows

Super Ghouls'n Ghosts (USA)

it should read

Super Ghouls'n Ghosts (USA)

I'm having to manually edit the files to fix them.

Yes the one from Sept 2017. Still has the above.

There are special entities in xml that can't be written as plain text like & for the ampersand character. The one for apostrophe is really only needed when attributes use single quotes rather than double but HS and any xml parser will automatically translate the special entities into the normal character so there's no reason to edit them.

OK - thanks for the explanation. I have noticed it does correct the text when it displays it.

Actually that’s exactly how it should be. The XML standard dictates that special characters should be replaced with their appropriate symbols.

Do not edit these out of the xmls or you will potentially break elements of your setup.
