Description Vsevolod Krishchenko 2011-08-03 09:29:09 UTC
Version:           1.0.80 (using KDE 4.6.5) 
OS:                Linux

History plugin escapes quote character (as """) and ampersand character as "&" when saving history. It affects both incoming and outcoming messages.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open some Jabber or ICQ chat (I have not tested other protocols, but I think it works with any protocol plugin).
2. Send some message containing '"' or '&'. 
Let's send just two characters: "&
3. Close char window.
4. Reopen the same chat or open a contact history.
5. Saved message looks like: "&

Actual Results:  
Saved message looks like: 

Expected Results:  
Saved message should look like: 

It does not affect <, > or ' characters. So it is not full HTML escaping.

Kopete 1.2.3 (KDE 4.8.3)

Bug still presents.

Also https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=269097 exists with patch (maybe helpful).
