U4-1076 - Apostrophes in document type description are shown preceded/escaped by a slash in the Create Node dialog

The problem exists when you use an apostrophe (note, there might be other characters too I just didn't notice) in a document type Description field.

When the user goes to create a new node, the description is shown with slash characters preceding these apostrophes. See screenshot.

Note, this problem still exists in 6.1.3 at least. I'm surprised no other votes or reports of this problem in the year since I first brought this up?

Guess not many people use descriptions.. :) Great candidate for a pull request if you have a few minutes! :)
