Hi Gurnam,

Well, ' and &apos; are the same as far as XSLT is concerned, as are "
and &quot;. So you can use the XPath:

  contains(., '"') or contains(., "'")

In XSLT, this XPath will live inside an attribute so either the
apostrophes or the double-quotes will need to be escaped (and you can
escape both if you like). For example:

  <xsl:if test="contains(., '&quot;') or contains(., &quot;'&quot;)">


  <xsl:if test='contains(., &apos;"&apos;) or contains(., "&apos;")'>
