I have a website with a single quote in its breadcrumb title:
Something's fishy with China algae plant

This was being displayed as:
Something's fishy with China algae plant

In custom_breadcrumb.module's custom_breadcrumb_nodeapi(), I added the html decode in the following line:
$trail[] = l(html_entity_decode($title, ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8'), trim($paths[$i]));

This fixed the problem nicely.

Thanks for the idea. An alternative solution would be to use decode_entities($title) (see http://api.drupal.org/api/function/decode_entities ). Older sites still running php4 will have problems with html_entity_decode producing a warning something like "cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode" but decode_entities from the drupal 6 api seems to work fine.

Is this still needed in the 7.x-2.x branch?
