Subject Re: ESME-26 The message parser should ignore # in urls
Date Tue, 27 Oct 2009 22:31:22 GMT
I think ESME-26 is resolved. Here's the comment I've included:

The problem with URL parsing is that it's based on RFC 1738, which
does not specify that a hash sign (#) is part of the URL. This is
resolved in RFC 1630, which defines the so called "fragment id", which
is used do specify anchors.

The naive approach of using '#' as a valid symbol for the hsegment
will produce some invalid urls, which seem to contain multiple
concatenated anchors:


Not only that, but including the hash sign (#) only for hsegment
parses as invalid URLs which have a query string before the anchor,
like the one Dick has pasted.

The problem with displaying chinese characters is different. I believe
the characters are stored correctly, but are displayed in a different
encoding, which Xuefeng might not expect (try changing the encoding in
the browser). This means the URLs will work, but you might not always
see them as expected.
