Attaching to MySQL tables from MS Access - apostrophes { Chr$(39) } in memo fields are somhow expanded to a 4-character string ("&#39")

Is an apostrophe a character of special significance to MySQL in a way
that would cause "Bob's dog" to become translated into a 12-character
string when typed into a MySQL memo field? If I type Bob's dog into an
Access memo field, I get a string that is 9-characters long.

When I read "Bob's dog" from a memo field in a MySQL table attacted
to MS Access via MyODBC driver, it displays as "Bob&#39s dog" - a
twelve character string. the &#39 looks like a HEX character code
value designator. Can someone provide me with a logical explanation
of why I might be seeing apostrophes this way from an MS Access
database having such tables attached?
