loadPage() can not correctly handle data-url with multiple parameters #3714

Per HTML specification, if a page is written in XHTML syntax, any "&" character must be escaped as "&" (a HTML5 page contains unescaped "&" characters won't pass W3C's validation service at all).

If a data-url attribute is expected to be explictily specified for a page, and the url contains multiple parameters, e.g.:


Then the markup should be:

<div data-role="page" data-url="/foo?a=1&amp;b=2"></div>

Currently loadPage() uses a regex to test against the HTML text to obtain the value of data-url, so it must unescape XML entities itself, otherwise, a wrong result must be returned.

Update the following line in $.mobile.loadPage():

url = fileUrl = path.getFilePath( RegExp.$1 );


url = fileUrl = path.getFilePath( $("<div>" + RegExp.$1 + "</div>").text() );

will solve the problem.
