In the revision history page of an answer, click "edit" next to an old answer, add an edit summary with an apostrophe (') or double-quotation-mark (") in it, and save without editing the post. The software will append "Rollback to revision [number]" to your edit summary (which is fine) and convert your quotation mark to the corresponding HTML entity displayed on the revisions list (which is a bug).

Example: http://meta.judaism.stackexchange.com/posts/593/revisions

The rollback comments were being html-encoded in the database, which is not how we usually store content.

This will be fixed going forward and I'll work on a fix for the existing bad content.
