html() method can't handle HTML encoded characters [ampersand-style]

Let's say we have following piece of code:

var someVar = "<b>"Don&39;t!"</b>;



#someDiv gets following content: <b>"Don&39;t!"</b>


Instead #someDiv gets following content: <b>"Don&39;t!"</b>

As you can see, html() method handles ampersand-and-numbers-encoded-special-characters the way text() method does/should. **"** character is rendered correctly, but **&39;** is not!

rwaldron beat me to it. That character code is invalid btw.

@rwaldron: Point was numeric-encodings, not alpha ones. Your fix was irrelevant sorry.

@timmywil: He didn't actually. Thanks for pointing out my error. Apparently I missed the hash (#) sign.
