Fixed Search warning not appearing correctly for html entities

While trying to perform a search with an ampersand in it (e.g., "Mike & Kier"), I noticed the following comes up in the results:
The following words were not included in your search because they are too short, too long, or too common: &

Think there might be a few things going on here -- may be browser dependent -- but, at the very least, I think the search_results template should probably output warnings as xen:raw or something similar.

I did notice that if an ampersand is included in the actual phrase it doesn't get converted into a html entity (separate bug?), so I think it may need a bit more than the above to properly fix the issue.

I've just disabled double encoding here. It's really the only way to handle it right now.
