Post history diff shows apparently double-escaped HTML entities

+4
−0

As Exhibit A, I present revision 2 of Switching to an admin user within Powershell SSH session on Power Users, and specifically its diff view against revision 1 of Stated Post.

The post itself contains simple quotation marks (", U+0022), but the diff shows " which is the HTML character entity for that same character.

The HTML source code includes " in that location.

This seems to me like a double-entitification bug, but:

  • if it's intended behavior, then this is a request for it to be changed such that the diff view shows the difference between the Markdown source for the current and previous revision; and
  • if it's unintended behavior, then this is a bug report for the incorrect behavior
