ampersand not formatted properly

Mar 15, 2011 at 7:58 PM

When an ampersand (&) is inserted into the Text Editor and it's viewed in HTML Mode and reverts to Design it's replaced by & and each time you repeat the process the length increases to & etc

The system should show the ampersand correctly in Design Mode without adjusting it causing the appended html conversion effect.

Hello, yes you are right. This is a bug in the current stable release. To get this fixed you must download one of the recent changesets :

You can test on the live demo to verify this is fixed : (it's running on the latest changeset) ;

Regardless, while the problem is fixed in the latest changeset, to maintain xhtml compliancy we still continue to use "entities" for special reserved characters like the ampersand so & will become &

Thanks for reporting,
