Pasting text with numeric character references (decimal * or hexadecimal ä) into a literal block will be shown as their interpreted values. They should be shown literally (unless the literal block is a custom one which outputs its content without escaping).
- Create any content object with an XML block (example, folder, article)
- Add a literal block into it
- Paste text like the following: *
- Publish, and access your content
The text will appear as * and not as *
This affects 5.4, but not 5.3.
