Entity Translation Not Wanted

I would call this a bug because it is behavior that frustrates me:  I type © in HTML mode and switch to normal view and it is changed to the copyright symbol.  If I had wanted the copyright symbol inserted directly, I would have inserted it myself:  there is a reason for coding such things as ©

I think its a CD bug in how they display in html view.  I just built a page with © and published it.  Then I looked at the published html and its still ©

I agree, its kinda disconcerting to see that
