Project: Python

Resolution: None
Bug Group: None
Priority: 1
Summary: cgi + <TextArea>.. + xml-data

Details: Hi!

I'm working under linux (mandrake 7.1) using python for my cgi scripts. There I've a formular containing a "textarea". If entering xml- or html-data into this textarea and submitting it the cgi-script doesn't get that xml-data. With non-xml-data everything works fine.

BTW: It's the same with an "input"-field.

We cannot help you with this bug unless you provide us with an example we can try ourselves.  We need at least:

1) a simple but complete script that shows the bug (try to pare it down from the script you are using to somehing that demonstrates just the problem)

2) the HTML of the form (ditto)

3) the text you are entering into the form

We also need:

- the Python version
- the browser name and version
- the server name and version

That said, I suspect that the problem is in your script, but without looking at it, I can't tell!
