howto turn off HTML escaping in form helper 'select'

Hi All

I noticed that the form helper 'select' does automatically do HTML
escaping for values within the option tag. I need to show thing like the
euro sign, so I need to be able to turn this feature off.

Controller:
  @crncy = %w($ &#8364 €)

View:
form.select(:id, @crncy.collect {|c| [ c, 'bla' ] }, {:prompt =>
'&#8364'})

The euro sign in :prompt is shown correctly, but the others are not.

Any suggestions ?

thnx

ps I'm using rails 2.0.2

It's hardcoded to do this. Can't thing of anything you can do except
build up the option tags yourself.

I red somewhere about an option :escape_html
Will this or is this already included in a newer rails version ?
