Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've just had a look at my user feed in StackOverflow and my first name is not displaying correctly in the title: I see Álvaro rather than Álvaro. The source code looks like this:

<title type="text">User &amp;#193;lvaro G. Vicario - Stack Overflow</title>

It seems that input is HTML-encoded twice in the <title> tag... It looks okay in the rest of the feed:

<name>Álvaro G. Vicario</name>


<name>&#193;lvaro G. Vicario</name>

So text is converted into HTML entities zero, one or two times :-?

(Is it even necessary to use HTML entities? Á is a valid character in UTF-8 anyway.)

Starting with the next build, these will no longer be double-encoded.
