When adding a new category, the name of the category is added to the Category Parent dropdown via javascript after the ajax call completes. If there is an ampersand in the category title it shows up in the dropdown as & instead of &.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Go to Admin->Posts->Categories
  2. Add new category with ampersand (&) in the name
  3. Look at the parent dropdown
