TestRail & HTML escaping

Post by HansSchl » Wed Dec 16, 2020 10:17 am

I recently noticed that characters which have a special meaning in HTML like & or > end up as their respective HTML entities when I'm viewing the test run in TestRail. For example, when a log entry contains the greater-than character, I see ">" in the report. The page source, unsurprisingly, contains ">".
Is there a way to escape from this double escaping, be it in Ranorex or in TestRail?

Thank you

Ranorex version: 9.3.1
TestRail version:
Operating system: Windows 10 x64
