$MenuTitle with HTML entities

Go to End

When $MenuTitle returns to a template and contains HTML entities, those entities are rendered a literals instead of HTML. So

<h2><a href="$Link" title="<% _t('VIEWFULL', 'View the full post titled') %> '$Title'">$MenuTitle</a></h2>

returns as: Just An Example&#8217;s Post

instead of as: Just An Example’s Post

I used SmartyPants to filter the MenuTitle() function's return value like this:

return SmartyPants($this->getMenuTitle());

Why is that? And how can I fix it?
