When a comment form is filled out that contains characters that are candidate for html encoding in the display of the comment on the web site, those comments are also html encoded in the display of the notification email send to the author.
Example comment left on my WordPress install:
Resulting email notification:
New comment on your post #168 "Prevent iTunes from creating unnecessary clutter and cruft" Author : -- E-mail : -- URL : Whois : -- Comment: Ampersand: & Quote: " Registered: ®
You can see all comments on this post here:
It appears that only the ampersand has this issue. I am not sure if it also applies to the subject of the email, but can confirm it applies to the body of the email.
The email headers show it was sent as plain text:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="UTF-8"
