@jjn - I don't think Felix is asking for anything. I think Felix is raising 2 good points 1) consistency is a virtue. 2) the data is JSON, not html. If a character needs to be utf encoded, so be it, but html encoding is not appropriate for any field other than body. – Sky Sanders Aug 10 '10 at 6:28
