Description

Entered this:

 <area shape="poly" coords="77,57,276" data-content="<a href=//google.com>link</a> some other content. Be careful with using the right quotes here!" title="Some title"> 

converted to this:

<area shape="poly" coords="77,57,276" data-content="<a href=//google.com>link</a> some other content. Be careful with using the right quotes here!&#8221; title=&#8221;Some title&#8221;></p>

Is it really so difficult to leave the content of the "Text" mode as it is?

Just to remind you, that W3C says "attributes on HTML elements may have any string value".
