(I believe there has been some work on this issue very recently by the University of Michigan folks. See this thread on Github - https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/issues/332 - and the associated merged pull request. – Christine)

Subject: ampersand issue


We are currently in ASpace v1.4.1 and recently observed an issue for when we try to import EAD files that contain ampersands in the XML, and are now curious if others have experienced this and/or if anyone knows a fix for the issue.

Currently when import files with an ampersand coded as "&" as seen in:

The "&" does not appear to be rendered in ASpace in any form, as seen in:

[cid:993f8f53faf84c06c4e511ca0ed858f1e1a23ace at zimbra]

In looking through JIRA it does not appear that this specific issue/behavior has been reported, but before reporting it as a bug we were hoping to determine if this was a universal issue, or perhaps just local.

Thanks for the help and feedback.
