Write File component substitutes for < and > symbols

Created: 26 Mar 2009 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 1 comment

Hello,

I am writing text files and I have come across some unusual behavior. When I create a file that includes either a > or a < symbol the system substitutes the HTML substituation codes &gt or &lt into the text file. The files I am writing will not be used in a browser so I really need the < and > symbols. Any ideas on why this happens and how I can stop it!

Thank You :-)

Cary

Try wrapping the text in a "HTML to Text Conversion" component before writing it off.
