Problem with encoding of apostrophs before and behind macro title in insert dialog


i need some help with an encoding problem in insert dialog in one of our systems.

After choosing an macro in macro browser the insert macro dialog opens and the apostroph before and behind the macro title is encoded with unicode decimal.

The problem occurs only in german so i think it s only a problem with the german language package.

In german language package 4.3.0 i found for the macro browser title following key:

macro.browser.insert.macro.title=&\#8216;{0}&\#8217; Makro einf\u00FCgen

In german language package 4.3.2 the value of macro browser title key has an other format:

macro.browser.insert.macro.title=\u2018{0}\u2019 Makro einf\u00FCgen

I think the variant of macro.browser.insert.macro.title in german language package 4.3.2 is right. The other variant is a little bit strange but the default language pack for confluence 4.3.2 is version 4.3.0! ;)

Later i found this ticket witch discribed my problem. the ticket describes also a problem with macro title encoding in french.
