Special Character in Page Title

Hey everybody!

Topic says it, I want to do something like

$this->title = 'something — something';

But of course, the title gets included in main.php like

<title><?= Html::encode($this->title) ?></title>

so that


doesn’t actually yield an em dash, but exactly the characters ‘&mdash;’.

Now, I could just remove the ‘Html::encode()’, but that surely is not what I want to do, because of obvious reasons. Is there any elegant, safe way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance!
