When displaying text using CFDocument in PDF format, if the text contains a less-than symbol ('<') NOT followed by a space character, the rest of the text does not display.
For example, this:
We reassured them that since it is <2cm in projected maximum diameter
Will be displayed like this:
We reassured them that since it is
It's as if the PFD conversion considers any less-than symbol not followed by a space as the start of a tag
<cfset theText="We reassured them that since it is <2cm in projected maximum diameter">
Now I realize that we could fix this by using the HTMLEditFormat() function on the text but this occurs in many locations and would require quite a lot of work. We are currently using ColdFusion 9.02 and plan to upgrade shortly. So I'm wondering if this problem has been fixed in newer versions.
Have something to add?
