Quotation marks are appearing as &quot

We've set up a macro to pre-format the code block macro to cpp. The problem is in our macro,

printf("Drive OEM is %s",oem_name);
is appearing as
printf("Drive OEM is %s",oem_name);

The macro is:

## @param Title:title=Title|type=string|desc=Title
<ac:macro ac:name="code">
<ac:parameter ac:name="language">cpp</ac:parameter>
 <ac:macro ac:name="code"><ac:parameter ac:name="title">$!paramTitle</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="language">cpp</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="atlassian-macro-output-type">BLOCK</ac:parameter>

And set to Escaped.

What confluence did is the " signs has been escaped and converted to html entity. Try turning escape off. maybe macro from yor example has a parameter not to escape html chars.

Thank you Matt
