#3166 closed defect (fixed)

'&' is used in URLs incorrectly

Priority: low Milestone: 0.10

The '&' char is used in URLs to separate parameters for scripts, it is not escaped properly and lead to html validation errors, see http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fprojects.edgewall.com%2Ftrac%2Froadmap

This can be devided into to parts. First, the scripts in Trac itself can be modified to understand other separaters in par with '&'. The w3 recommended char is ';'. Second, change '&' to ';' where possible and escape '&' where it is not possible to change, e.g. in external links.

I'm impressed by Trac, thanks a lot indeed to everyone involved in its development!
