[#1350] Escape chars in DotFileFormatSimple #1360
ChrizZz110 left a comment
HTML encoding fits not here. Try to open a dot file with gephi and you will see that it can not interpret it as a quote. The right way is to encode each " with a " ... having this, gephi successfully imports the data and parses the escaped quote to a quote in the data explorer.
But then the question arises whether we should cater for a gephi specific problem. If i create a png using graphviz, the html escaped characters are properly rendered. Its just gephi who does not understand these sequences and takes all of the chars "as is" (at least thats what i'm seeing in the data view). I think we need to decide whether the simple format will primarily be used to render graphs in gephi or to render simpler graphics with graphviz.
