Apostrophe Encoding

I've been working on a site recently where a page had a Varchar text field with an apostrophe in it. I noticed SS encodes it as ' in the final output but the problem is IE doesn't recoginse ' (apparently you need to use ' instead).
I can fix the problem by using $Title.RAW in the template so nothing gets encoded but that could get old doing it all over the templates.

Anyway, is there an easier way I'm missing? Is there a header or setting I've missed that solves the problem?
