Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi, I am trying to merge together two .osm XML files using Osmosis from CLI. In the XML files there is some public transport data (like bus stops) and some of them have an apostrophe (') in their name (as in Italy is often considered as an accent). When I try to merge the two files, I get a single XML file but with the apostrophes being replaced with the " ' " string.

How can I preserve the apostrophes after the merge?

There is nothing wrong with that. It is just how XML encodes apostrophes. Any program reading XML files should read those correctly.

Oh, I understand. It was mostly in case I needed to check manually the files so I could understand immediately what the special character was. Thanks!
