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.
