See the problem reproduction below. The same goes for — and – (and maybe some others). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Make a file "xxx.html" (or use the URL) with such a contents: aaa © bbb ccc <br> ddd — eee – fff <br> ggg & hhh < iii > jjj <br> (yes, I know: not a valid HTML file :-) ) 2. Open it in firefox 3. View the page source (I got: aaa © bbb ccc <br> ddd — eee – fff <br> ggg & hhh < iii > jjj <br> ) 4. Select (with a mouse) the page's all contents, right click it and select "View selection's source" (I got: <html><head></head><body>aaa © bbb ccc <br> ddd — eee – fff <br> ggg & hhh < iii > jjj <br> </body></html> ) Note that in both operations stays , just as & , < and > do. Actual Results: (told above) Expected Results: The two different ways of displaying ©, —, &ndash is rather a bug (I didn't test other entities). Maybe it's good to let user decide whether to show such entites as &xxx; or as a resulting character. I think there should be some option or checkable menu item to decide on it.
The "selection source" is the DOM source, not the original page source, hence the different output. The naming was changed in bug 236465 so that it is obvious that this is the case.
Summary: A copyright-mark 'entity' (©) is displayed as a letter c in a circle instead of original text → A copyright-mark 'entity' (©) is displayed as a letter c in a circle instead of original text
