My hosting service sent me this note: The server hosting began experiencing stability problems early this morning and many sites were emergency-migrated to a newer server to avoid downtime. I think the trouble you're seeing with apostrophes and other special characters has to do with a character-encoding problem when migrating your database to the new server.

The funny characters since the site was moved have mostly been fixed.

The big issue I see that concerns me is in the CMS some of the "Content" pages are empty. The page still shows on the site, but if you hit "save and publish" the page then has no content up on the web. The other odd thing is it's only some of the pages that have empty Content within the CMS. Not sure how the site is even working up on the web at all.

Any clues?
