You're getting stuff as cp1252 — "’" is 92 in cp1252 — but you're outputting it as is in a document you claim is UTF-8.

Always decode your inputs. Always encode your outputs. You are apparently doing neither.

Note that the quote is character U+2019, so the proper escape is ’ or ’, not \.

If you pass properly decoded text to the following function, it will produce 7-bit clean UTF-8 (aka US-ASCII) XML text and XML attribute values.

sub encode_entities { my ($self, $text) = @_; $text =~ s/&/&amp;/g; $text =~ s/</&lt;/g; $text =~ s/>/&gt;/g; $text =~ s/"/&quot;/g; $text =~ s/'/&#39;/g; $text =~ s/([^\x20-\x7E])/sprintf("&#x%X;", ord($1))/eg; return $text; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
