Description Michael De La Rue 2007-09-07 09:15:38 EDT
Description of problem:
Some RSS feeds, e.g. http://rss.gazeta.pl/pub/rss/wiadomosci.xml have story
links with commas in them.  When opening these in blam, the commas are HTML
character encoded and so the links don't open correctly.  The links work
correctly when put directly into the browser. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add new feed http://rss.gazeta.pl/pub/rss/wiadomosci.xml
2. refresh
3. try to open any story
4. story doesn't open
5. replace %2c with , in page (multiple times)
6. story opens
Actual results:
page opens after stage 6

Expected results:
page opens after stage 4

Thanks for your bug report; and eureka, this might be easier to solve than I had
thought at first. It appears to be a missing System.Web.HttpUtility library:

** (Blam:17072): WARNING **: Missing method HtmlDecode in assembly
/usr/lib/blam/blam.exe, type System.Web.HttpUtility

Installing the mono-web package seems to fix this issue for me. Can you please
try this and let me know if it also fixes the issue for you? If so, I'll add
this to the spec file as a runtime dependency.

Comment 2 Peter Gordon 2007-09-08 15:16:30 EDT
Actually, I'm going to add the mono-web dependency for bug 275561, so hopefully
it should fix this issue at the same time. I'll push this through the build
system momentarily...
Comment 3 Michael De La Rue 2007-09-09 13:18:29 EDT
I have mono-web-1.2.3-3.fc7 installed and still see the problem.  I did this to
fix my other bug report (bug #275561). I also reported the same problem as bug
#282931 against liferea.
