Error description

  • Request for a report containing a chart with tooltips through
    REST. When the REST command is made with fmt=HTML. The chart
    image gets rendered properly however the tooltips are shown as
    URL encoded and becomes hard to read.??This also may become and
    important accessibility issue since screen reader will try to
    read the encoded alt string to the user.??Checked the LDX
    generated by RSVP, and the label string is not encoded in
    LDX.??Example:??<area shape="poly" nohref="nohref"
    coords="90,286,92,276,82,274,80,285,90,287"?title="Year%20%3D%20
    2001%0AOrder%20Method1%20%3D%20Mail%0AActual%20Revenue%20%3D%201
    %2C941%2C161.00%0AQuantity%20%3D%2025684"
    alt="Year%20%3D%202001%0AOrder%20Method1%20%3D%20Mail%0AActual%2
    0Revenue%20%3D%201%2C941%2C161.00%0AQuantity%20%3D%2025684"/>
