2082219 - Space Between HTML Attribute and Value Causes Attribute To Be Ignored


  • A Text field in a report is formatted with Text interpretation set to "HTML Text".
  • Some of the interpretation attributes are ignored by the report.
  • Example:
    • When using "style" attributes if there is a space between the attribute and the value, e.g. "FONT-FAMILY: SimSun" the report will not render Asian characters, replacing them with squares.
  • The same issue is observed with "FONT-SIZE" attribute.
