I run in another WebSafe filtering problem with that may not be a bug
but it's certainly not a feature either.
The #include directive resets the filter back to the default. So this
means you're not really safe by using Template.Template(...,
filter='WebSafe') if you ever used the #include directive anywhere in
your code. I thought that loading the template with WebSafe was
enough and I can't see anything in the docs that warns about the
included files having to explicitly re-arm the WebSafe filter that
gets deactivated at every new #include directive.
Unfortunately what I'm suggesting is a change in backwards
compatibility so I'm unsure if it's allowed, but I believe this is
what the filtering API was supposed to be in the first place. The
current API is asking for troubles (I introduced a bug in my code
because of the current API that got fixed by applying the below patch
to Cheetah, so this is a real life trouble... well as much as my
project is real life in the first place ;). The risk in applying this
patch is having to add some #filter RawOrEncodedUnicode if you
depended on this misfeature that made RawOrEncodedUnicode the filter
of the included files. And yes, I also depended on it in one place but
I had to add a single #filter RawOrEncodedUnicode while the other
approach would have required to round all included files (many) with
#filter WebSafe at the top. If I had to add #filter WebSafe all over
the place to be safe, then I could give it up with filter='WebSafe'
completely and only use #filter WebSafe everywhere. It's pointless to
use filter='WebSafe' if it takes care of only 10% of the templates, I
prefer to use the same method to arm WebSafe for all templates.
Here the proposed fix:
