P4DTI issue job000260

TitleSpecial HTML chars in change descriptions not escaped by TeamTrack
Assigned userRichard Brooksby
DescriptionAngle brackets and other special HTML characters aren't escaped as "&gt;" etc. by TeamTrack in the fixes table. For example, a change description like "foo <bar> baz" looks like "foo baz" because the browser thinks "bar" is HTML markup. It needs to be output as "foo &lt;bar&gt; baz". Similarly, "foo & baz" should be output as "foo &amp; baz". The P4DTI TeamTrack integration is now maintained and supported by TeamShare <http://www.teamshare.com/>.
AnalysisTeamShare need to escape greater-than, less-than, and ampersand characters when they output changelist descriptions and other text from Perforce.
