Create HTML table action: bug with extended character encoding?


I am using the "Create HTML table" action to build HTML table code and reuse it in an HTML document.

When I provide text with accented and special characters, some of them are not encoded properly.


For example, passing a JSON array containing the following string (4 extended characters):

maîtres d'œuvres 

returns an HTML table with the following encoding: 

maîtres d'œuvres

where the Latin Small Ligature œ is not encoded to œ and the horizontal ellipsis … is not encoded to … as they should.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

If so, any smart workaround other than Replace(Replace(Replace( all_the_characters_not_properly_encoded...))) or a slow ForEach replacement loop?


Thank you for your kind support
