File containing "/" is rejected - why?

Dear all,
 
an IS-XML file containing the forward slash ("/") in a free text field is rejected. Why? The asci code is DEC 47 and hence should be ok. Also, slashes don't need to be escaped in XMLs.
So what is the reason for this behaviour?
 
Thanks and best regards,
Elias

Hi Elias,

 

‘/’ is not an alphanumeric but rather a special character. This is why this is rejected as in this text field you are only allowed alphanumeric characters.

 

Regards,

Ashley
