Sample permalink URL-encoded

When using a non-latin post title, the previewed permalink appears URL-encoded (see $ATT). Since it's just an informative display of the slug, I believe that a non-encoded readable format would be more helpful for users to make them able to check the slug.

It would also fix a bug (probably jquery-related somewhere in slug.js) when an URL-encoded slug like "%e6%88%90%e7%9…" can't be edited inline, since the input doesn't get populated by such slug.

A simple fix is to add a default filter for the 'editable_slug' hook, see the attached patch. (This fixes the same issue for taxonomy slug edits etc. as well.)

(Since no characters that would require converting to special chars are ever produced by the permalink routine, I assume it's safe to URL-decode the string and leaving it then as-is for HTML output.)
