Error description

  • If a Static Text field exists on a form in ClearQuest Web with a
    value that contains ?angle? brackets (greater than and less than
    symbols) ?? the value between the brackets, including the
    symbols will be omitted in the output on the screen.
    
    If this same value is also present in another form control, such
    as a text box, then the value will appear and will be correctly
    modifiable.
    
    This will occur in any browser, and works correctly in Eclipse
    RCP and Classic Windows native clients.
    
    Workaround:
    1) Use the single line text field as read only (greyed out) to
    represent this text.
    2) Add a space after the less than ? symbol for example:
    ? value?
