Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

On rare occasions I want to show the content of a TWiki variable literally - which fails if the TWiki variable contains HTML elements (as is the case with HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW).

Right now I can do the following:

  • Prevent TWiki processing and HTML parsing by embedding in <verbatim>...</verbatim> (which will escape < and >)
  • Prevent TWiki processing, but allow HTML parsing by embedding in <literal>...</literal>
  • Allow TWiki processing, but hide from HTML by embedding in HTML comments (as is frequently done when setting variables)

I'd like to write things like the following:

   * Current value: HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW = %ENCODE{"%HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW%" type="html"}%
and get (simulated):
  • Current value: HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW = <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed" href="/do/view/Bugs/WebRss" />

Ouch - my fault.

type="entity" is supposed to do the escaping I want. In this case it fails because the double quotes created when expanding HTTP_EQUIV_ON_VIEW confuse the argument parser of %ENCODE%. Discarding.
