Problem passing a 'title_li' with HTML entities to wp_list_pages()

There are a problem with use of parse_str() function to parse the arguments passed to the wp_list_pages() function. If you want to write a word with HTML entities on the "title_li" argument the system cut the word at the first "&". This is really important in non english languages that uses tildes, acutes, etc.
Ex.: <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=<h2>P&aacute;ginas</h2>' ); ?>
Become: <h2>P

I put an quick&dirty hack on "Additional Information".

PS: This is my first Report so, I'm sorry if this is not the correct way to solve the issue :)

It can be solved changing the template like this:

This is more a limitation of the parse_str function, which is what PHP uses to parse the query string-style arguments. I don't know how we could fix this, except for some ugly hacks or taking it in traditional-style function arguments, but that defeats the whole purpose of using query strings in the first place.

I would recommend solving this by doing title_li= and putting the H2 seperately, as is in comment 3. But how about for other arguments that may need entities?

rawurlencode the value that has entities. parse_str decodes internally.

Remember that you can also pass an array.

wp_list_pages(array('title_li' => '<h2>P&aacute;ginas</h2>'));
