Post history diff shows apparently double-escaped HTML entities
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
&quot; 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
