Subject [PATCH] mod_autoindex: understand entity names
Date Thu, 11 Sep 1997 08:58:41 GMT
The appended patch fixes two shortcomings in mod_autoindex's
AddDescription  logic:

1)  Entity Names (like &uuml;) are parsed and counted as having a width
    of "one character". Until now, their length was taken in column
    counting, resulting in too early truncated description columns.

2)  The last character of a description text which had the maximum
    allowed length (27?) was overwritten with the "truncated" character
    ('>'). This didn't make the string any shorter, but made it
    unreadable :-(   Now the string is truncated only if it really
    exceeds the maximum length.

Please vote....
