[sip-comm-dev] Question regarding HTML tags inside a chat window


#1

Dear all,

when using am IM chat (AIM in this case) I see HTML tags in
the chat window if the other party sends a message. The
other party uses some other IM client.

I've checked if one can switch on HTML mode during chat. I
haven't found a switch :slight_smile: . Can some kind soul give me a
hint. Thanks.

Regards,
Werner

Hi Werner,

I confirm I've seen it with AIM.

It first noticed it when I logged into my AIM account from another
computer while SIP Communicator was already logged in and AIM sent a
message to it notifying it about the second login: the message
contained a link which was displayed as HTML source. I debugged it and
I talked to Emil and the problem appears to be that the AIM-supporting
lib says that the message is in plain-text so we have to display it as
such. If we choose to implement HTML detection by just looking at the
text, we risk to interpret plain-text messages containing HTML source
code meant to be displayed as code.

The second time it happened was when I sent messages from an AIM
account logged into meebo.com to another AIM account logged into SIP
Communicator.

Regards,
Lubomir
