[Quoted] [Quoted] It appears that the PL/SQL gateway document upload cannot (or will not) [Quoted] [Quoted] upload a file that appears to have an HTML anchor in it (although extra [Quoted] whitespace does spoof it, if indeed, it's rejecting the file on purpose.

[Quoted] [Quoted] After a lot of testing, I ended up with this fragment of HTML that causes [Quoted] the PL/SQL Gateway upload routine to fail:

[Quoted] [Quoted] <a href="javascript:alert('set all');"><small><em>All</em></small></a></td>

[Quoted] [Quoted] get rid of the '<' or the '=', and the file loads with no problem.

Has anybody else experienced this or is anybody aware of any documention on this?

[Quoted] Or could this be an HTTP issue?
