Item6750: Encode also space in encode="html" to preserve TML in HTML input fields

Small change: When encode="html", encode also space besides newline and linefeed.

Reason: When feeding content into an HTML input field, it might get interpreted by TWiki as TML, such as *bold*, _italic_, or a URL like http://twiki.org. When space is encoded as  , it effectively escapes the TML, e.g. text fed into an HTML input field is preserved as is.

This takes effect in:

  • %ENCODE{ "..." type="html" }%
  • %FORMFIELD{ "..." encode="html" }%
  • %QUERYPARAMS{ "..." encode="html" }%
  • %URLPARAM{ "..." encode="html" }%

This change was needed to preserve form fields in the improved user profile pages, Item6733, TWiki:Codev.MoreVisualUserHomepages.

This is now in SVN trunk (and 5.0 branch, although a 5.0.2 release is not expected).
