Apache Velocity Escape characters

I know that is not the right forum but PLEASE help,

I am creating a velocity template and the velocity template object is being escaped,

what i am trying to do is use the following template:

this calls the method getUrl() on the person class but the url that is being returned is being escaped,

urls are being converted from:
"< a href='' rel="nofollow" >< / a >"
& quot ; & lt ; a href= & quot; quot;& gt; lt;/a& gt;& quot;

i think this is being done in:
* class: org.apache.velocity.runtime.parser.node
* method: render(InternalContextAdapter context, Writer writer)

any advice would be amazing,

Thanks in Advance,

I agree. Here's the link:
