Word Online (Business) Connector - unable to handle these characters ' " < > & when using Populate a microsoft word template

If your input string has any of these characters ' " < > &, when the document is created it seems to pharse as the Html Entity instead of escaping the characters.

 

 Example:

Input:Capture1.JPG

output to processing:Capture2.JPG

within word document:Capture3.JPG

 

Is there a way to get around this or is this an issue with the Word Processing function the connector is using?
