Odd behavoiur in the Longstring property

An oddity I just found is that the LongString property renders differently with the <episerver:property tag when the user is logged in or not. The evidence that made me react was some embedded &nbsp; in the text. these were encoded and thus invisible when the user was logged in.

I havn’t looked into the reasons for this but the solution for situations where it´s just a string to print is to use the xhtml-property with disabled editor controls.

This problem was tricky to notice because it´s common to require login for staging servers.

This is probably related to the EPiServer "Permisson for functions"-feature that can give any user or group all tools in the editor.

This changes the behaivor of Long String and XHtml string is rendered when you uncheck all editor tools for a property (when you want a clean text box and not rich text).

I have reported this as a defect a some time ago but I think it slipped...

Seems I was a bit too quick creating the profile.... Thanks for the heads up.
