form_helper corrupts text_fields which have raw html entities

Reported by Kevin Glowacz | May 1st, 2008 @ 04:53 PM

copied from Trac#8116 :

Given the title "The HTML Entity for & is &", the field to edit it should look something like:

 <input id="post_title" name="post[title]" size="30" type="text" value="The HTML Entity for &amp; is &amp;amp;" />

Such strings are correctly escaped in textarea tags, but currently not in text_fields.

I have reformatted this patch by mchenryc

This patch fixes the problem with text fields and adds tests for both text fields and text areas.
