apostrophe shown as &#039 everywhere on odesk

The apostrophe is shown as &#039 everywhere on odesk. I see this cryptic &#039 everywhere instead of apostrophe symbol lately on odesk. Is it limited to me only? Is it widespread? If that's the case, do the staff know about it?

I see it on feedback comments and profiles. You need to click "more" then it shows the apostrophe.
