Description Terje Bless 2002-10-31 03:07:01 UTC
Reported by Björn Höhrmann:

Consider I have a CGI script taking parameters like <;outline=1>; 
the validator does not escape the URI when creating the "link to /this/ page" text, it will 
produce;outline=1 which 
will be misinterpreted by the validator.

I'm going to leave this one for a while. A good solution requires turning the
URI into a URI::URL object -- or at least creating a proper escape function to
be used on-demand -- and that has some potential for side-effects that I don't
want to deal with for the next beta. Leaving target as 0.6.0 Final.

Since the next beta got pushed back I've added a fix for this. It's rather
simplistic but dealt with my test cases. Please retest this Bjorn to very that
it's fixed.

0.6.0 is out the door so retargetting for 0.6.1.
