Blogger Apostrophe Workaround

I think I’ve found a workaround for the apostrophes-in-widget-titles problem. I tried using an apostrophe character at the place I wanted the apostrophe, and it turned into a quote after save, but I got an idea from one of Blogger’s comment notification emails to replace the apostrophe character position with '. That appears to display an apostrophe instead of getting converted to a quote. I’ll see if it holds.
