dojo master regexp your arse, glasshoppa!

Dojo Toolkit and Regexp monster child runs amok. Citizens terrified. Where will it stop??

I want to put ‘>=2 ‘ in a combobox.

Dojo master say no.

In fact, it seems to be escaping any even vaguely ‘dodgy’ characters. I can’t put < in, fair enough. I can’t put & in. I tried ‘<‘ even. It converts that to & lt; but it won’t resolve anything with an ampersand in either.

This bug, and yes I say it IS a bug, is bugging the arse off me.

bloody wordpress is at it too! Leave me the hell alone! What is wrong with you people?!?!

Eclecticism is the light and the way. Parsnips are fantastic. Celeriac is evil.

  1. If dojo didn’t ignore escaped characters, that would be so kewl.

    put ‘\x3c 70’ into a select option, and you get ‘\x3c 70’ rendered in your combo box. Nice.

    It ignores me. How rude!

    There must be some special dojo thing.
