That's an already escaped html. Let it be a mini htmlpage:

The right content of <title> tag is "-<-" when unescaped but the
code unescapehtml produce "-<-". Explanation step by step:

1) The code looks for all '&'
2) When found replace it by '&'
3) <title> content is now "-<-"
4) Now the code looks for '<'
5) When found replace it by '<'
6) Now title content is "-<-"

 Result := StringReplace(s,      '&',  '&', [rfReplaceAll]);
 Result := StringReplace(Result, '<',   '<', [rfReplaceAll]);

I hope my explanations are now understandable.
