Title: & escape disappearing
Submitter: Jörg Richter
Date: Sun Jan 25 11:32:32 2009
Subsys: Dot
Version: 2.16.1
System: x86-OSX-
Severity: minor
Problem:
Commandline: dot -Tcmapx -o map << ...

Results in this output:

<map id="tree" name="tree"> <area shape="rect" href="a" title="&amp; &;" alt="" coords="5,6,77,54"/> </map>

Note that "&amp;" is transformed to "&". But this only happens when it is followed by a ";"
Input:

digraph tree {
"1" [shape="box", label="&amp; &amp;;", URL="a"];
}
