    Default Description field truncated after quotes, only in Web Access

    Hi everyone,

    I have a number of videos in my library that have words in quotes in the Description field of the metadata. When viewing in the Mezzmo GUI on the server the descriptions appear in full. However, when viewing via Web Access the description is truncated at the first quote ("). If I replace the quotes with apostrophes (') everything displays as it should.

    Q1. Is it a bug or is there a reason for this behaviour?

    Q2. If it must be this way for a reason, is there an easy way to replace " with ' in the description field only of the entire database?
    Cheers,
    Marty Davey.

    Hi Marty,
    I expect this is a bug, in the html markup quotes are used for values and Mezzmo may not be escaping the quotes in the metadata so the html interpreter in the browser is reading the quote and this is causing an error in the page. We will reproduce this here and fix it.
