    DDR XML output fails to encode ampersand


      DDR XML output fails to encode ampersand


      FileMaker Pro


      Advance, 14.01

      Operating system version

      OS X 10.9.5

      Description of the issue

      The DDR output fails to properly encode the ampersand character for an attribute string.  Here's an example tag (actual output from the DDR XML): 

      In our case, this happened when inserting an image on a layout, and the filename had the ampersand in it.

      The ampersand should be encoded as "&" (I think).

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Export the XML DDR from a solution that happens to have included a graphic who's source filename had an ampersand in it.


      Rename the input file.
