Subject [jira] [Updated] (LANG-1303) Escape HTML characters only once
Date Sun, 25 Dec 2016 18:56:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-1303?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Sampanna Kahu updated LANG-1303:
--------------------------------
    Description: 
If already escaped HTML characters are in the input test, they get escaped again using StringEscapeUtils.escapeHtml4().

For example:
If the input is:
100 kg &lt; 1000kg
Then the output of escapeHtml4() becomes:
100kg &amp;lt; 1000kg

At my workplace, we felt the need for a method in StringEscapeUtils which does not escape
already escaped characters.

I have attempted to create this method. Creating a pull request soon.
