Character entities in Email subject

Email subjects are being delivered with character entities.  For example, instead of:

Chuck’s Store

Emails subjects look like:

Chuck&apo;s Store.

I looked in the transactional emails seciton of the admin, looked at store settings, and looked at the database tables and there are no character entities anywhere.  I can not find were the header information is generated for emails sent from the cart.  I wanted to check if it was a charset issue…

any thoughts where I should start looking for the cause?

The server is a php5+, mysql5+ running version 1.0.19870.4 of Magento Commerce
