ACTUAL BEHAVIOR

A Custom Task Flow with HTML form spins in WebCenter Portal when entering special characters like apostrophes or single quotes cut and paste from External Sites.

This is a custom task flow added as Shared Library to WebCenter Portal.
Running the Task Flow application standalone works fine with the same special characters.
After the application spins refreshing the browser shows the information but the special characters are stripped out.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

Expect the task flow behaves correctly with any characters.
