    I've a MVC ListView which was working perfectly until I've localized it to German. My resources are managed in Visual Studio's Resource Designer, the typical way I'd say. If any of these resources contains an umlaut and is used directly in the template, it will be converted to something like "ö". The unescaped hash sign breaks the template. I've tried several attempts to fix this issue, but none of them worked:

    1.<script type="text/x-kendo-tmpl" id="recordLinesTemplate">
    2.@Resources.Resources.BtnDeleteLine // "Zeile l&#246;schen"
    3.@Resources.Resources.BtnDeleteLine.Replace('#', 'X') // "Zeile l&#246;schen"
    4.@((Resources.Resources.BtnDeleteLine).Replace('#', 'X')) // "Zeile l&#246;schen"
    5.@Resources.Resources.BtnDeleteLine.Replace("ö", "ö") // "Zeile l&amp;ouml;schen"
    6.@WebUtility.HtmlEncode(Resources.Resources.BtnDeleteLine) // "Zeile l&amp;#246;schen"

    Out of curiosity, I've tried to encode the umlaut directly in the resource, but the ampersand gets encoded as well.

    Any ideas how to resolve this issue?

    Beste Grüße with two umlauts,

    PS: The forth attempt is not shown correctly. I've tried to replace the "ö" with "& ouml;".

    Hello Carsten,

    You can avoid the problem by preventing the encoding using the Html.Raw helper:

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
