Sorry to bother but I believe I am in need of your help. On a XAML Xamarin.Forms.ContentPage, I am trying to put some (or all) of the content of a Xamarin.Forms.Label in a <![CDATA[ ]]> block. However, it appears that the CDATA contents are ignored. Below is the XAML ContentPage:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2009/xaml" x:Class="CdataTest.CdataTestPage" Padding="20">
<![CDATA[<b>Bold</b>]]> Test <![CDATA[<b>Bold</b>]]>
I am expecting the app to display:
<b>Bold</b> Test <b>Bold</b>
However, it only displays:
I've uploaded a demo project (PCL iOS and Android) here: https://github.com/baskren/CDATA_Issue
Any insight as to what I am doing wrong would be greatly appreciated!
Confirmed up through 126.96.36.199-pre3
this will be fixed in 2.3.5
Created attachment 23286 [details]
