I use javascript to populate two select boxes, now if i put some text directly in an option tag then it display fine on the page, but if i tried to create a new option object and add it to the select via javascript the special character is not converted.

myArray['Area'] = new Array('cm²','m²');  // should be superscript number 2

<select>
<option>cm&#178;</option>  // this works
</select

any ideas?
