Subject: "entities" option to ->as_HTML not behaving as advertised
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 755b
use HTML::TreeBuilder; my $TB = HTML::TreeBuilder->new(); my $html = $TB->parse("This &#x17f;oftware has &#383;ome bugs")->eof->element\ ify(); print $html->as_HTML(""); The documentation claims: The optional argument $entities specifies a string of the entities to encode. For compatibility with previous versions, specify '<>&' here. If omitted or undef, all unsafe characters are encoded as HTML entities. If behavior were as described, the argument of "" that I've supplied should be taken as "a string of the entitites to encode", since it is neither omitted nor undef. However, HTML::Element seems to be taking "" to be the same as an omitted or undefined argument here. An argument of "\0" does suppress the encoding feature.

POD has been updated to reflect this inaccuracy, and your workaround has been placed into the POD as well. Thank you for the suggestion. This fix is part of HTML-Tree 3.22, which will be released this weekend as part of the Chicago Hackathon.

That wasn't my suggestion, and using the documentation to codify the workaround for this dumbassed bug is exactly the wrong approach, in my opinion.

You are absolutely right, and I have been properly rebuked. 3.23 is on its way to CPAN.
