Question/Problem Description

When a page has a Description set, if the "HTML included in the head" field contains "description", it will not render on the front-end.

Steps to Reproduce1. Create a new page, and set the "Description" to some text
2. Add the script shown below to the "HTML included in the head tag"
3. Observe that this script doesn't render on the front-end. If it is changed to "description2", then it renders ok.

The additional HTML:

<script type="application/ld+json">
"description": "test"

This is a bug in Sitefinity. For more information see
The issue has been fixed in Sitefinity 12.1.7100.0.
Replace one of the characters in "description" with a JSON escape sequence, e.g. replace 'd' with '\u0064'.  It will render correctly and the consumer of this JSON will correctly interpret '\u0064escription' as "description".
