Hi fellow Rails developers,

I am using option tags with a select form helper. One option values is
containing a special character quoted as html-entity ( ä ). When I
provide the option tags to the select tag helper the ampersand gets
quoted automatically. The result is ä which doesn't look as
expected. Has anybody an idea how to avoid this quoting?
