Description

When using the wordpress rest api, the api returns special characters as unicode decimal code instead of the correct character.

How to reproduce:
create fresh wordpress install and a new post with "&" in the title.
Query http://[url]/wp-json/wp/v2/posts and check post.title.rendered field

Instead of just "&" it will display "&# 038;" (without the space)

It would be optimal if this would be converted serverside.
