When an apostrophe appears in a text for a button, everything after the
apostrophe is lost.
For example, mediawiki:savefile in Walloon is "Schaper l' fitchî" (note the
That text is displayed in a button when uploading a file with warnings.
The html of the rendered page is as follow:
... <input tabindex='2' type='submit' name='wpUpload' value='Schaper l' fitchî'
Here you see what the problem is, the text in the value= field is enclosed in
single quotes, and the the single quote in the text itself isn't escaped.
As a result, the button only shows "Schaper l" instead of "Schaper l' fitchî".
All text that is to be displayed in the rendered page that way should be
escaped for apostrophes.
