Conversion of & to &

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

We are using HTL for component development.

The title field is populated dynamically and contains the character '&': example : Audio & Video.

When we "View page source"  & is converted to & due to html encoding. example : Audio & Video

We want to avoid this encoding and & should be displayed as & itself.

context="unsafe" and context="scriptToken" avoids encoding and helps to resolve the issue, but these are not recommended and accepted by the client.

We have tried using StringUtils,encode(), StringUtils.escape() methods but it did not work as expected

Are there any other alternatives through which this can be achieved. Any pointers would help

use <div>${properties.text @ context='html'}</div>

context='html' will convert &amp; to & on page

Normally character like & < > are always encoded, why is this not the case at your components?

Hi Feike,

On the page the value is displayed correctly.

Its only when we try viewing page source code it is converted to '&amp;'

We want '&' to display as '&' only when we view page source as well.
