Autocomplete widget escapes provided values #103

When using widget.AutocompleteWidget, the values provided are escaped.
For example when providing

 [u"John & Son"]

The resulting generated javascript is :

$('#' + oid).autocomplete({source: ["John & Son"] ...

In :

- $('#' + oid).autocomplete({source: ${values}});
+ $('#' + oid).autocomplete({source: ${structure:values}});

Fix the issue.

Note to self: what if someone has a ">" in one of their values?

Maybe using bleach to whitelist some html tags could be an option
