Description CBM 2007-09-11 23:36:43 UTC
The links in the auto-generated API documentation no longer work - they have html entity names instead of ampersands.  The same bug affects the automatic documentation for query.php.

I think that the "txt" output format of query.php also changed, so that now instead of => the greater than sign is replaced with the HTML escape. I realize that query.php is deprecated, however.

API has this too, I noticed. I think this Brion's fix to bug 11158 in r25742 caused this, so I'm assigning this to him.

AmiDaniel did something about this in r25802: the links work now, but the < and > aren't escaped anymore, rendering all XML tags invisible.

r25802 is a huge security hole which made the problem even worse. I've reverted it.
