This question has been addressed elsewhere. See: Some symbols are displayed as HTML encoding in question description

I've also included an ampersand in the title of this question to test whether the title is also affected in the question preview. As can be seen on the front page, the ampersand in the question preview title displays correctly, so it is only the content preview that has this problem:
