Certain characters in plan or item descriptions cause invalid XML

Good morning!

Quick bug report. I created an item today for testing purposes, and named the description "Spam & Eggs Breakfast". Teehee.
Anyway, when I did that, the XML that came back started being invalid, because CheddarGetter isn't escaping the & (it should be &).

I would postulate that CG needs to escape < and >, as well, but I didn't try them.

    That should read:
    "(it should be &amp;)"

    I wrote out the full thing, but it was coalesced into just the & symbol by the HTML display.

    Luke -- You're right. There are a view user-defined values that need to be escaped. It's been on the todo list. We've just completed a patch that should take care of the last of the necessary escaping. We're running some regression tests now. Assuming that goes well, we'll release the patch today.

    Thanks for the report.
