    The Title Says it all..

    " " = &.n.b.s.p.;. what does "'" = ? (Apostrophe) = ?

    I put periods in there, because without it it disappears..


    I need to have ' in my thing, but it uses javascript so it becomes a problem.

    Thanks in Advance.

    A left single quote is &.l.s.q.u.o.; and &.r.s.q.u.o.; is a right single quote as you no doubt guessed. (No periods though)

    Webmonkey has a good reference sheet that might help you in the future.

    Not sure of the question, but. If you need an ' apostrophe inside a script , you have to add a \ backslash before it, so the apostrophe isn't read as the end of the string.)

    That Reference Sheet Really Helped Out! Everything I Needed was there.

    Thanks Em, It's my first site. It's still got some issues, but I'm working on them.

    Yes it is always a goof idea to use the special characters, even for simple things like dollar signs.

    &n.b.s.p; (without all the periods)
    is an HTML entity that stands for NonBreaking SPace. HTML only allows one white space character between letters (numbers, symbols etc...) Use   if you want to have additional spaces between your page elements.
