Why do html entities get replaced upon import?

I notice that when I import an htm file into calibre (not conversion - just importing it into the library), calibre alters my document. For example, all of the character entities such as “ &rdquo, — get replaced with “ ” and — in the file.

Is this by design, or is it a bug? This should not occur - these entities are used in place of the characters for a reason. Simply importing a book shouldn't mess with the internals of it.

it's by design, and it isn't going to change. I lack the time to tell you why, you will just have to take my word for it.

EDIT: And if you dont want this behavior just put your html files in a zip file before importing them
