I’m having an issue with 3.8.2.

In fr_FR, we use HTMLHTML HTML is an acronym for Hyper Text Markup Language. It is a markup language that is used in the development of web pages and websites. entities in order to have correct French typography, especially nbsp (non-breaking space).

For example, while in English numbers are written “1,234.56”, in French it should be “1 234,56” (with a nbsp). Hence, we translate “number_format_thousands_sep” into “ ”.

Problem is, it seems that since 3.8.2, thousands appear as “1&234” rather than “1 234”. I’ve received reports, and I could test in WPFR’s own blog: “Akismet a déjà protégé votre site de 299&115 commentaires indésirables.” or “8&922 éléments”.

Did anything change entities-wise in 3.8.2?
