Summary0007401: Single quote character in arbitrary category name leads to javascript error
DescriptionWhen a category with a single quote character (') exists Visual CMS will fail to load and completely prevent editors from editing any content.
This character is more common in some languages like e.g. dutch or french.

This seems to be due to incorrect escaping in ddoevisualcmsadmin.tpl.
The category widget "shortcode", which is part of the core visual cms module, loads all available categories and presents these as selectable options in the widget.
The generation of these options in ddoevisualcmsadmin.tpl seems to be the problem.

Steps To Reproduce- Create or edit a category with a single quote in it's name (e.g. "Single Quote ' Test")
- Click on the Visual CMS menu entry
- Watch a javascript error occur and preventing the Visual CMS from loading
TagsNo tags attached.
