    Kendo UI: MVC 2012.3.1114 Commercial
    OS: Windows 7 64 bit
    Browser: IE 9
    JQuery: 1.8.2

    When uploading a file with special characters (for example "&#170.xlsx") using the Upload control with "showFileList" option turned on, the special characters are processed. What would be desirable is to have the file list show the filename as the user sees it on their machine. It would make sense to see an apostrophe, but not see special HTML codes or JavaScript processed. This can be viewed by uploading a file with the name "&#170.xlsx" using the demo Upload control at http://demos.kendoui.com/web/upload/index.html. What can be done about this? Thanks.
