WebError is not Unicode safe

Reported by: digulla Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: TurboGears Version: 2.0rc1
Severity: major Keywords:


If the stacktrace contains umlauts (non-ascii characters), then the code in WebError? 0.10.1 fails. The underlying issue is that WebError? uses cgi.escape() to escape special HTML characters but this method doesn't escape unicode characters and this leads to problems eventually.

My fix was to copy the code for "_encode_entity" from elementtree-1.2.7_20070827_preview-py2.6.egg into WebError?-0.10.1-py2.6.egg/weberror/evalexception.py and replace all calls to cgi.escape() with the new function.

Waht to you mean with "fails"? Do you get a server error? Then this is probably the same as #2238.
