Public bug reported:
Utils.websafe() escapes characters like < and >. Recent change in this function added 8bit characters like \xbc and \xbe as 'dangerous' characters. This breaks Japanese text display because they appear as a part of double-byte characters. Because these characters are only 'dangerous' for old browsers, I suggest reverting the change or at least making configurable whether the site administrator apply changes or not.
