This is a question about double quotes in textArea form

My domain contains a description field, for free text entry in a form.

Suppose an object of my domain has description text which contains text that include double quotes.
The double quotes display correctly in the "Show View" but in the "Edit View" the double quotes display like this: "& quot ;" (I added spaces so that it displays the words and not the symbols.)

Why does this happen and how do I fix it?

Thank you.

use decodeHTML to your bean property i.g domain.description.decodeHTML()
