Incorrect handling of escaped characters \u four-hex-digits

description

When a JSON string contains an escaped character the output both in terms of the "text formatting" and within the "viewer" is incorrectly displayed.
 
For example with the following JSON input:
{"value":"15.90","currency":"GBP","display":"\u00a315.90"}
 
The following value is expected for "display":
£15.90
 
The actual (incorrect) output is:
00a315.90
 
This occurs both within the standalone viewer and the Fiddler add-on.
 
Regards,
Dean.

Yes, the same happens when JSON contains cyrillic characters. Very annoying.
