Description

HTML entities are not converted into normal characters. E.g. we use – or &hellip in translations (see example URL). Is it possible that Django didn't escape these strings so that they are displayed correctly?
These are in localizations in the templates, not in content.

Thomas, is it possible to use the unicode characters instead of the entities? The whole tool chain should support unicode without changes. Otherwise we have to prevent entities from being escaped which adds potential security holes--and will have to happen anywhere one locale wants to use an entity.

Thanks for your answer, James. I now use the unicode characters instead of the entities. I don't want to create security holes in SUMO with that small request.

Set as Wontfix.
