When one of the choices for a Choice field contains a double quote, the display form (DispForm.aspx) will display " rather than the double quote. When creating a new item, editing an item, or displaying the field in a view, it displays correctly. This does not appear to be the case for SharePoint 2010. I believe this is a bug introduced in SharePoint 2013.

Does anyone have a recommendation on a possible solution or workaround? Does it make sense to put some JavaScript/jQuery on the display form to try to fix how the text is displayed?


Try this which has resolved the same issue for multiple lines of text.

<xsl:value-of select="@NIOText2" disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
