The DCM Graphic Layout Editor displays a grey screen after a text string containing a special character is converted to 'multi-line' format (when layout was previously edited).

The following error also appears in the java console window when trying to retrieve the layout :


adjust elements location.....start
max_width=474.0 max_height=1788.3999999999999
oracle.xml.parser.v2.XMLParseException: Expected name instead of .



A similar error can also be returned in the background DCM form when the grey screen appears and an attempt is made to preview the layout via 'File > Print Preview HTML' ie


24311 : ORA-20100: Error occurred while parsing:
Expected name instead of .
ORA-06512: at "SYS.XMLPARSER",line 22
ORA-06512: at "SYS.XMLPARSER, line 103
