      Description

      When running this command:

      /tellraw @a {
        text:"Hover.",
        hoverEvent:{
          action:show_entity,
          value:"{name:\"Bob\",type:Creeper,id:00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000}"
        }
      }
      

      Expected behavior:
      Upon being tellraw-ed the text, it will display in chat the word "Hover." and when hovering over it, basic information about Bob the creeper will be displayed.

      Actual behavior:
      When I am tellraw-ed the text, the word "Hover." appears in chat, but hovering over it does nothing.

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Get a command block.
      2. Copy paste this command into the command block.
      3. Power the command block.
      4. Hover over the message.

      I've tried to get this command to work - and you can see the discussion for this - over here, on github. As you can see from this discussion page, at first glance it looks to be an issue with compatibility with my environment.
