Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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).

I just had this issue as well: – animuson Feb 24 '12 at 20:07

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.
