      Description

      Following was reported by folks at Google Scholar.

      Observed behaviour

      Look at an item where one of the authors has special characters in the name, for example, 

      http://demo.dspace.org/xmlui/handle/10673/314

      Go into "view source" and go to the HEAD section where the META tags are exposed. Compare what you see for authors in dc.creator, with the citation_* tags, like citation_author

      In creator, it's correct:

      meta name="DC.creator" content="ètésteinî" 

      In citation_author, unwanted escaping is added.

      <meta content="&egrave;t&eacute;stein&icirc;" name="citation_author">
      

      Desired behaviour

      meta name="DC.creator" content="ètésteinî" 

      meta content="ètésteinî" name="citation_author"
