If you create a category with the Category Manager which compromises an ampersand, it won't be displayed correctly.
The ampersand seems be double HTML encoded.
[Steps to reproduce]:
1) Login in to Share as admin
2) Navigate to Admin Tools -> Category Manager
3) Create a category with an "&"-sign in its name, e.g. "A & B"
4.) Refresh page and check result
The category "A & B" is displayed in the Category Manager
The Category Manager displays the category as
encoding the ampersand character (see attached screenshot).
[Analysis to date]:
1.) It seems this display flaw only occurs in the Category Manager, all other category-views in Alfresco Share (e.g. the select categories form element) appear to display the newly created category correctly as "A & B".
2.) Behaviour is reproducible on 4.2.x and 5.0.x
