2. Launch the respective portal.
3. Navigate to taxonomy and create the new taxonomy with the name "P&P".
4. Create the content with the same category, in category drop-down the name is not displayed correctly.

Root Cause

The & followed by character which will be treated as accesskey ( hot key).

So in the browser it is displaying underscore of that character. Pega engine will generate accesskey attribute on that element and browser take care of processing the event.


Perform the following local-change step:

Implement "&Character" in the label of link to display to the user as "&Character".
