If I put a cal to TOOLTIPinside an EDITTABLE cell, when the table is saved, the TOOLTIP code is transformed into incorrect JavaScript.

I wouldn't mind so much if it was transformed into correct JavaScript, but after editing the table, the result doesn't work.

Initial content of table

| apple | %TOOLTIP{TEXT="Whaoooo !" FONTCOLOR="#336699" TITLE="Tooltip" SHADOW="true" SHADOWCOLOR="#ccaacc" FONTSIZE="18px"}% put your mouse here, you should see a tooltip %TOOLTIP{END}%| 

Post-edit with EDITTABLE

| apple | <a border="0" href="javascript:void(0);"  onmouseover="TEXT="Whaoooo !" FONTCOLOR="#336699" TITLE="Tooltip" SHADOW="true" SHADOWCOLOR="#ccaacc" FONTSIZE="18px";return escape('')"> put your mouse here, you should see a tooltip </A> |

(If the cell isn't a textarea, it's worse because the content is truncated badly.)

Note that a %TWISTY% within an editable cel is not expanded to the equivalent JS. The %TOOLTIP% should not be expanded either.

Workaround: use the "without plugin installed" JS as shown in ToolTipPlugin examples.

What version of TWiki and EditTablePlugin is this?

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 23 Sep 2008

Found in TWiki 4.05 with various patch updates running EditTable 4.8.4, $Rev: 17302 (04 Aug 2008)

Reproducible in TWiki 4.1.2

EditTable docs say "Any TWiki variable inside a table cell will be preserved. For instance, %TOPIC% will not get expanded to the current topic name."

-- TWiki:Main.VickiBrown - 23 Sep 2008

For some reason ToolTipPlugin has the rendering in postRenderingHandler. This is after EditTablePlugin can protect the tags. Change it to commonTagsHandler and it works.
