Rails 3 - Ruby 1.9.2 - cannot output correctly HTML special characters

this is my first Rails3-Ruby 1.9.2 test app..
I cannot out a simple html string w special characters like ©

copyright = "Copyright © " + " 2010 , TestApp Ltd."

using copyright in my view, I see displayed

Copyright © 2010, TestApp Ltd.

what's wrong ? what's missing somewhere (was running well in Rails
2.3-Ruby 1..8.7 )

thanks fyi

HTML escaping is done by default in Rails 3:

The solution in is the posts above.
