Summary: double-quotes incorrectly converted to HTML in header values

Initial Comment:
(I'll use a double exclamation mark (!!) instead of a
double-quote here, because it seems the double-quotes
are converted to """ here by mistake)
If I enter a short description like the following line
for a mailing list:
List about !!something interesting!!

mailman-2.1.4 cunnecessarily converts the double quotes
(!!) to " in EMail header values. Example:
List-Id: !!List about "something interesting"
!! <mailbox at domain.org>

I think that the quoting in font of an EMail address
enclosed by anglr brackets (<...>) is not necessary,
and using HTML is wron and not portable. I might work
with some broken clients however.
