(Is it just me, or is anyone else having trouble seeing apostrophes and ampersands in the comments? There should be an ampersand between "Nails" and "Fasteners" in my comment above, and of course in all the possessives. I've viewed it in Firefox 3.0 and IE7 and get the same results. Weird.)

@Devon: TypePad launched a new Beta comments format last Thursday, and it still has bugs. I can see all the HTML punctuation on my Edit Comments page, but as you point out it does not appear in published comments. I have filed a help ticket with TypePad, and as you can see am working hard to avoid contractions.
