ASCII encoded characters are decoded when switching between HTML & Visual editors
|Reported by:||Gnopps||Owned by:|
If ASCII-codes instead of characters are entered in the HTML editor and then saved the resulting page is also stored with these codes. However, if the codes are entered first in the HTML editor and then you switch to Visual editor and back to HTML editor the codes have been decoded and instead their representative characters are shown and stored in the resulting code.
In HTML-editor enter
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=" title="">AB</a>
and save. Show the page created and in its source you will see the ASCII-codes above have been saved just as they were entered.
Now with the codes visible switch to the Visual editor and then switch back to HTML editor. You will now see that the ASCII-codes are gone and instead you will see
The bug here is that the editor(s) transform the ASCII-codes instead of saving them as they are typed.
