Bug Description

If an organisation unit name contains an ampersand (&), or presumably another quotable HTML character, it is in appropriately quoted in the "Organisation Unit" field of the Data Entry form, for example as "&".

To reproduce, go to and change the "Bo" district name to "Bo & others". Then bring up Data Entry and select this org unit. On the left it says "Bo & others" but in the Data Entry field for Organisation Unit it says "Bo & others". (See attached screen shot.)
