Description

20 years ago
Right now the list of special characters that wont work ok are:

       / slash
       = equals
       \ backslash

/ and \ wont be problems for values stored. They would be problems for keys.

The fix needs to be checked into RDF and tested (from rdf.h):

/* ProgID prefixes for RDF DLL registration. */
#define NS_RDF_PROGID                           "component://netscape/rdf"
#define NS_RDF_DATASOURCE_PROGID                NS_RDF_PROGID "/datasource"
#define NS_RDF_DATASOURCE_PROGID_PREFIX         NS_RDF_DATASOURCE_PROGID
"?name="
#define NS_RDF_RESOURCE_FACTORY_PROGID
"component://netscape/rdf/resource-factory"
#define NS_RDF_RESOURCE_FACTORY_PROGID_PREFIX   NS_RDF_RESOURCE_FACTORY_PROGID
"?name="

Okay, this works. But -- I can't figure out how to mark it as verified. Can I
not do this as a lowly developer?
