My website is displaying the apostrophes as inch marks.. how do I change this?
Because you have coded them that way.
You need to use unicode characters for the best results but be aware that that your font may be at fault here if it uses the same symbols.

Thanks! I always thought they were apostrophes not inch marks, until this project. Thanks again!
If you use a unicode encoding, as Paulie_D suggests (UTF-8 is [almost] *always* the best choice), you can simply use those characters directly in your text and not worry about it.
