Description: ------------ HTML_QuickForm::setDefaults with a htmlentities callback function will result in special characters being converted twice! For example: $form->setDefaults($result[0], 'htmlentities'); Letters such as special n (n with a tilde), or any other international characters are first converted using the callback function to their ascii names, ñ, and when outputted, again converted to &ñ If the data is called without using a callback function, the letters are not converted at all, and causes problems in displaying the form.

This is not a bug. To prevent problems with national letters configure your webserver to return the right charset.
