The same issue occurs with many other special characters like single quotation mark (') being displayed as &squo; and double quotation mark (") as &dquo;

Cause

The issue is due to the XSS parsing of the UI. This is causing the special characters to be displayed as their character references.

Resolution

This issue will be resolved with 1608 release.
