[Zope] why zope is rendering apostrophe as a small square box

The apostrophe was entered with a different encoding from what you're 
using to show it.
My guess is that you copy and paste a LATIN1 string, entered it into a 
form that doesn't transform and then you're trying to show it with 
Content-Type UTF8.

Getting encodings right has never been easy.
...unless you keep it simple and consistent.
