Subject [Roller-JIRA] Commented: (ROL-1397) APP interop: null byte 0x0 getting into entry contents
Date Sat, 21 Jul 2007 15:55:31 GMT


Anil Gangolli commented on ROL-1397:

Note that APP doesn't mandate a particular charset.  Some character encodings may have null
bytes as part of normal content.   

We could address this if we restrict the encoding to UTF-8, which may be an implicit requirement
of the current implementation anyway.  I may be missing something, but it seems like it  could
get  ugly to try to be resilient to this client bug on the receiving end.

> Some clients (the APE and Joe Gregorio's WXPython client) see to inject null bytes into
APP entry content. Not sure if this is a client side or a JDOM issue. Either way, we need
to sanitize input to remove bad characters and ensure well-formed HTML or XHTML.
