Ampersand from action class escaped to '&'

Currently I'm having issues with generating non-breaking white space for options in a Struts select tag. Trying to make multi-column select if you will, and line up the option text.

If my action property has a " ", the '&' is replaced with "&" I get " " which will not generate non-breaking spaces of course.

I did a quick search in the source, but nothing really surfaced.

I have seen were the <s:property> has the "escape" property, but nothing like that for the select.

Seems like my only option (no-pun intended) is to build the select more manually with an iterator...
