[ic] Quoting problems

A customer of ours sells items with different heights, widths, etc.  They
specify the heights and widths with ' (for feet) and " (inches).  However,
as you can imagine, these two characters horribly mess up the ITL tags,
select boxes, and some of the javascript code.

I've tried setting an htmlentities filter for options in the meta editor,
but that only escapes the ".  And of course, an option ends up going in as
36" instead of 36" .  If the options get edited again, it ends up being
36" .  That won't work.

So how do i let people put ' and " in without breaking their products?
