Hey all,

I get things dynamically from a database....
I need for special characters to have their html equivalents..okay, this is done by a plugin in the page. Anyways..when I draw from the plugin and funnel the words into the javascript arrays, they show like this...

THESE & THOSE

which is fine because & is for the & sign...
anyways, when I reiterate thru the array and show the values in a drop down...it shows exactly that which is in the array...I need it to show

THESE & THOSE
rather than
THESE &amp THOSE

the funny thing is, onload of the page, I use the special characters and it shows correct..its only when I 'redraw' the dropdown does it not work..

any ideas?
