For instance, this:

/** See some_other_method().
void some_method();

/** Yadda " Yadda
void some_other_method();

can apparently lead to this HTML, for some_other_method:

See some_other_method()).

Notice the unescaped " inside the title tag's value. It should instead be ". I'm not sure what other entities are legal in an attribute value.

These doxygen bugs might have the same cause, or be related somehow: # 567542 , # 653372 .

doxygen version 1.7.6. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.
