AntiXss.UrlEncode Vs. AntiXss.HtmlAttributeEncode Usage In Link (a Href)?
According to old AntiXss article on MSDN AntiXss.UrlEncode is used to encode link href (Untrusted-input in the following example):[URL]My understanding was, that UrlEncode should be used only when setting something to URL, like when setting document.location with JS. So why don't I use HtmlAttributeEncode in the previous example to encode [Untrusted-input]? On the other hand is there a security flaw if I use UrlEncode to encode HTML attributes like in the above sample?

Why Use Microsoft AntiXSS Library
When you can simply encode the data using HttpUtility.HtmlEncode, why should we use AntiXss.HtmlEncode? Why is white list approach better than black listing?Also, in the Anti XSS library, where do I specify the whitelist?

Decode S-JIS String To UTF-8?
I am working on a Japanese File and I have no knowledge of the language. The file is encoded in S-JIS. Now, I am supposed to convert the contents into UTF-8 so that the content looks like Japanese. And here I am completely blank. I tried the following code that I found somewhere on Internet but no luck:

byte[] arrByte = Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(arrActualData[x]);
string str = ASCIIEncoding.ASCII.GetString(arrByte);

MVC :: Rendering Encoded Html?
I cannot seem to get over this problem. Im sure it is just a simple newbie question but I just cannot find the right answer on my own.

Im using MVC 2 and ASP. NET 4.0 to biuld simple CMS. Im storing encoded HTML in XML file which then i am passing to front page controller for display.

I understand that before inserting HTML from XML into the page, it should be decoded using HttpUtility.Decode() function.


I expected that this sould result in inserting decoded HTML into my index.aspx page. Then browser could render my decoded content for example in bold face.

What happens is quite awkward. In page source I have encoded HTML but it renders HTML with tags. For example I see "<strong> Lorem ipsum </stong>", instead of Lorem Ipsum.

C# - Getting The Domain From A URL Encoded String?
Another beginner question, I'm afraid... I was wondering if someone could tell me the easiest and most efficient way of getting the fully qualified domain name (e.g. from a UrlEncoded string in ASP.Net (C#).For example: give me: basically anything where I can check the domain to make sure it's correct.)I'm guessing the first step might be to UrlDecode, but since this is how I'm getting the string, I thought I'd mention it incase it's easier Encoded.

Web Forms :: HTML Decode In A Listbox?
I have a (hopefully) simple question: I have a listbox that is databound to a MSSQL database. I have it all set up through the Visual Studio UI. Everything is working it just displays the HTML markup instead of the actual character being called.

For example:

If I have a store called "Something's Here", when it's put into the database, the code changes "Something's Here" to "Something&#8242;s Here".

All I need is someway I can HTML Decode the data that is put into the listbox. I've tried to do a HTML Decode through code on just about every page event to try and trigger it before and after it's databound. I've checked all the controls for the listbox and nothing says anything about HTML Decoding or HTML Encoding.

HttpUtility.HtmlDecode Cannot Decode ASCII Greater Than 127?
I have a list of character that display fine in WebBrowser in the form of encoded characters such as &#65533; ... But when posting these characters onto server to I realized that HttpUtility.HtmlDecode cannot convert them to characters as browser did, they all become space.

text = System.Web.HttpUtility.HtmlDecode("");

I expect it to return € but it return space instead. The same thing happen for some other characters as well.

MVC :: HttpUtility.Decode Does Not Work In TextBox Or TextArea?
I am trying to render html encoded string that is stored in SQL Server into human readable form. The HttpUtility.Decode does not decode the text that is rendered in between the open tag and closing tag of any input tag (ie. TextBox or TextArea or Select) in my ASPX page. However, HttpUtility.Decode works fine if the text is not in an input tag. The following is my test code. For example, the value of AdmitDX field in database is "Someone's comment" which is "Someone's comment" when decoded. The first two code nuggets <%%> will show as "Someone's comment" and the thrid code nugget will show "Someone's comment".

<!-- the following two lines have html encoded text, instead of html decoded text -->
<%= Html.TextArea("AdmitDX", HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(thisTransfer.AdmitDX))%>
<%= Html.TextBox("AdmitDX", HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(thisTransfer.AdmitDX)) %>
<!-- the next line works fine -->
Test = <%= HttpUtility.HtmlDecode(thisTransfer.AdmitDX) %>

Gridview Not Parsing Xml Encoded Characters Correctly
I'm having a problem using a xml file as datasource for my gridview.

I create this xml file myself using XMLTextWriter class, the file is created parsing an existing excel file so I don't have control over the data retrieved from the excel file. Using XMLTextWriter does encode the special characters correctly, for example: <Enter> instead of <Enter>. The problem is when I try to open this created xml for editing, I use a GridView and bind all the data but special character data is not show in the row.

Excel Data: Enter E or e and press <Enter>
XML Data: Enter E or e and press <Enter>
Data in GridView: Enter E or e and press

Is there a way to force the the GridView to decode the xml attributes correctly?

Ajax - Callback To Encoded URL With UTF Characters Fails On IE?
I have Russian blog built with BlogEngine.NET 1.5.

I use Russian words in links encoded with URLEncode, so links are human-readable in most browsers - FF, Chrome, Opera (except for IE, but this is not the real problem with this browser). This idea is not mine, I borrowed it from Wikipedia - it uses encoded URLs on localized sites.

The real problem is that when I am trying to add comment in IE8 it fails (and only on production machine, development environment works fine).

Using Fiddler I found out that IE tries to send AJAX callback using WebForm_DoCallback to wrong address - it seems that it decodes URL, gets wrong characters and asks page with that wrong address from server and (of course) receives 404.

Here is how incorrect request from IE looks in Fiddler:

POST /ru/post/�������������-�����.aspx HTTP/1.1

Here is how FF makes same request and gets correct response:

POST /ru/post/%D0%92%D1%81%D1%82%D1%83%D0%BF%D0%B8%D1%82%D0%B5%D0%BB%D1%8C%D0%BD%D0%BE%D0%B5-%D1%81%D0%BB%D0%BE%D0%B2%D0%BE.aspx HTTP/1.1

I upgraded solution from default ASP.NET 2.0 for BE to ASP.NET 3.5 but this changed nothing. I made some minor changes in BE to allow properly encoded UTF links - by default it wipes out percent symbol from links.

what wrong is with IE behavior here and how to fix it? Why development environment under ASP.NET Development works different from production machine under IIS6? Why IE does not decode link in address bar (like other browsers) but does it when making request?

MVC :: Prevent Custom HtmlHelper's Html Being Encoded?
When you render one of the "built in" html helpers (say "TextBoxFor") with ":" (so it's encoded) it renders fine.However if I render the following (a custom file input helper) with ":", the markup are displayed.I understand why. Just don't know how to prevent this (no, I want to stay with ":" and not use "=")(I looked at the source code for the built in ones, but can't see what I'm missing: ttp:// )

Encoded String Length Greater Than Max Specified For User?
I'm using ASP.NET with sql-server. I have an area where the user can enter text of a maximum amount. I encode this text as a good measure but the encoded length can be greater than this maximum amount when I try to insert it into the database.

Special characters are encoded on 3 characters. I can't show the user that he has exceeded the max amount of characters because from his perspective he hasn't. I also can't set the database field to the worst case scenario (being 3 times my max amount).

However, I couldn't figure out how to pass a complex array as one parameter of the webservice, so I had the idea of serializing it as json and passing a simple string. So far so good...

$args['products'] = json_encode($booking['Booking']['prs_products']);

I have the following markup in my .master file


Clearly Asp.Net does something to encode the url. As it happens, I really need the head tag to be runat="server" and I would also like to be able to have "&" in link-urls within it is there some trick I can use to have my cake and eat it too?

.NET Is Unable To Decode String When Java Can "Hi%E1" ?
My problem is with .Net Http/Uri libraries not being able to decode or unescape this character sequence: "Hi%E1". Neither Uri.UnescapeDataString nor HttpUtility.UrlDecode can do it.

Although I have a solution to get around this problem ( ) I would like to understand why it is failing.

The 1st test here throws an exception! The second just fails.

Assert.That(Uri.UnescapeDataString("Hi%E1"), Is.EqualTo("Hiá"));

There is nothing in the docs to indicate that UnescapeDataString or UrlDecode are restricted to character sets or any reason why these tests would fail. However, from testing, it would appear that HttpUtility assumes UTF-8 (or some other) encoding.

The Java equivalent works! Probably because it allows an encoding to be set.

URLDecoder.decode("Hi%E1","windows-1252"); // this works btw, ie passes tests

Which looks like a very sensible move considering the .Net work-around (see URL above)

Are the .Net implementations of these methods just crap and .Net devs just have to write their own - or am I missing something?

BTW Everything I know of in IIS set to UTF-8, and Chinese/Japanese characters show fine, so I don't yet know how it could it be that this URI consists of windows-1252 encoded characters. If I could fix the URI to contain UTF-8 encoding, that would be a better way of fixing this.
