[Haskell-cafe] Unescaping with HaXmL (or anything else!)

I want to unescape an encoded XML or HTML string, e.g. converting "
to the quote character, etc.
Since I'm using HaXml anyway, I tried using xmlUnEscapeContent with no
luck, e.g. with HaXml 1.19.1:
let (CString _ s _) =
head $ xmlUnEscapeContent stdXmlEscaper $
[CString False "This is a "quoted string"" ()] in s
The result is unchanged, i.e. "This is a "quoted string"".
Am I doing something wrong, or are my expectations wrong, or is this a bug?
Or, is there any other library that includes a simple unescape function
for XML or HTML?
(The Network.URI module includes an unescape function, but that's
specific to URIs, naturally.)
