The spring message tag is not scaping html properly when spanish accent is present and htmlEscape attribute is set to true.
Text code (in property file):
$labelUnsubscribe = '<spring:message code="label.unsubscribe" htmlEscape="true" />';
Cancelar subscripci& oacute;n --> note the &Xcute not scaped.
'EncodingFilter' is set to UTF-8.
When the htmlEscape attribute is set to false or the property is not specified, the message is shown correctly, but we think that the output should be scaped correctly when the property is set to true, according with the documentation.
EDIT: Created new issues on Spring Framework project, as this issues was created in the wrong place. Please close it. https://jira.spring.io/browse/SPR-12132
