I've noticed that HTML entities that are entered in XMLUI getting eaten, badly, and don't render how they would be expected.

If the collection administrator adds a non-breaking-space,   

It is displayed in JSPUI fine: http://demo.dspace.org/jspui/handle/10673/6652
Miranda, Antoinette  pp. 4

However, XMLUI changed the ampersand into an html entity, and breaks the nbsp: http://demo.dspace.org/xmlui/handle/10673/6652
Miranda, Antoinette  pp. 4

I'm clueless as to what cocoon has done to transform this.

So, is there a better way to input/display nbsp's in xmlui, or do I have to convince collection admins that cosmetic things like a space need to be done in css, so wrap things in a span tag with a class?
