skazat has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm finding that vars that I pull from the's param method are encoded, as if they've been run through HML::Entities. Ala:

my $foo = $q->param('foo');

I couldn't find the entity encoding spec'd in the docs - is this something new? This is becoming a problem, as I'm double-encoding my HTML::Entities. I've been working with for about 9 years now and this is surprising to find the behavior change.

I'm having a hard time making a simple example from the large behemoth of a problem that's showing this problem, but I will continue to try to get one :)
