I am not sure of the significance but when I view the source of that
page, for your first problem I see

            <li id="bot-solutions"><a
target="_self" title="Solutions"><b><span

So it is not in fact using the html entity.  Having said that it does
look fine for me (Firefox 11.10 in Ubuntu 12.04).
I don't know what to suggest I am afraid.
