HTML code for an apostrophe


Seemingly simple, but I cannot find anything relevant on the web.

What is the correct HTML code for an apostrophe? Is it ’?

Best Solution

If you are looking for straight apostrophe ' (U+00027), it is

' or ' (latest is HTLM 5 only)

If you are looking for the curly apostrophe (U+02019), then yes, it is

’ or ’

As of to know which one to use, there are great answers in the Graphic Design community: What’s the right character for an apostrophe?.
