Unescaped selection options

Been having a tough time finding any info on this subject (somewhat
suprising actually). Looking thru the code, Rails automatically
html_escape’s all option values and while this is generally good, I have
some categories that have HTML embedded in them and therefore am looking
for a way to turn this off. So far I have found none and am writing my
own code to do this. If anyone knows of anything already existing, I
would appreciate it.
