Relates to TWiki:Support/SpacingOutParentsInBreadcrumbs

The %META tag doesn't call expandStandardEscapes() on its results, so doing something like


in the %META tag won't work, and render $percntSPACEOUT{$topic}$percnt literally.

I fixed this by simply changing the returns from sub META in TWiki.pm to be caught into a string and then change the final return to:

    return expandStandardEscapes($returnString);

The escapes now work as expected.

Here in Bugs the %META actually makes TWiki crash

I have not confimed if this also happens on T42 branch.

-- KennethLavrsen - 25 Jan 2008

It does not crash on T42 branch.

no so crashy anymore? Item5288Test

and fixed.
