Forum OpenACS Development: Re: HTML quoting in the templating system

Posted by Eduardo Pérez on
I understand your point, don't get me wrong, I know most people don't care about quoting, but they should care.

You know there are cases where you have html stored in the DB and you don't want to quote it when showing it in the html page.

Maybe we should use some kind of strict typing to prevent unquoted text to go directly to a html page.

Another problem with this approach is that the transition is not gradual, once you apply this noquote patch everything breaks, as it's quoted twice, and you have to remove all the code that properly quoted text.
That's why I suggest the alternative ;quote tag.
