It seems that sometime between 1.3a3 and the current
nightly something changed in the way that user-entered
links and links for archive pages are turned into HTML.
It causes pages to no longer validate.
Previously, they were as such:
<a href="http://wordpress.org/" title="Powered by
alt="WordPress" title="Powered by WordPress" /></a>
Now, they have single quotemarks:
<a href='http://wordpress.org/' title='Powered by
alt='WordPress' title='Powered by WordPress' /></a>
The problem arises when the title or alt text has an
apostrophe/single quote mark in it, because it's seen
as the closing mark for the tag property and the
validator gives errors.
(Example of problem tag: <a ... title='Justin's
If I can clarify this at all, please let me know. Or if
this is meant to be this way for a reason, and there's
something I should be doing differently, let me know
(The href tags for the archive page links have been
changed to single quotemarks as well)
