Error description

  • Some EXSLT String module extension functions do not handle
    Non-ASCII XML characters properly.
    
    Affected functions are "str:padding", "str:split" with empty 2nd
    argument and "str:align".
    

Local fix

  • Use str:tokenize(_,'') instead of str:split(_,'').
    For str:padding() and str:split(), none.
    

Problem summary

  • Affected is the use of "str:padding", "str:split" with empty
    2nd argument and "str:align" EXSLT extension functions.
    
    These functions do not handle Non-ASCII XML characters
    correctly; these are samples for wrong behavior:
    
    str:padding(11,'𐀈𐀉𐀊')
    str:split('$¢€𐀈', '')
    str:align('¢€',
    '𐀈𐀉𐀊𐀋𐀌', 'center')
    

Problem conclusion

Temporary fix
