Summary0000290: cBlorb creates badly-formed StatusCblorb.html when story title contains an apostrophe
DescriptionApostrophes should be escaped in file names in StatusCblorb.html, otherwise cBlorb produces HTML code like this:

<font size=2><a href='javascript:window.Project.openFile("/home/fliep/Documents/writing/if/'Mid the Sagebrush Materials/Release/'Mid the Sagebrush.zblorb")'><img src='file:///home/fliep/Documents/writing/if/'Mid [^] the Sagebrush Materials/Small Cover.png' height=16 width=16 border=0></a> 'Mid the Sagebrush.zblorb</font>

The apostrophe in the story title terminates the string, causing the status panel (and Firefox) not to be able to load the cover art.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
"'Mid the Sagebrush"

Sagebrush is a room.

Release along with cover art. [Also include cover art in the Materials directory, bug doesn't happen 
with default cover art.]
Additional InformationTitle was previously: 'Error messages when releasing games with an apostrophe in the path'. I moved this to Core Inform because it's a bug in CBlorb. Reproduced on GNOME and OS X. (Philip, Oct. 1, 2010)

Translated (modulo my ability to translate Dutch with the help of the web):

I think Gnome Inform 7 gives an error message when you (a) release a game with additional files (e.g. cover art), and (b) have the name of the game directory beginning with an apostrophe.

At least I get the following error:

Error opening file /media/data/Interactive Fiction/My Games/: Error reading file '/media/data/Interactive Fiction/My Games/': Is a directory

My game is in

/media/data/Interactive Fiction/My Games/'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus.inform

and in

/media/data/Interactive Fiction/My Games/'Mid the sagebrush and the cactus Materials.

If I rename it to something without an apostrophe, I get no error messages.

Incidentally, I must do everything just right; I believe the cover art must also be added to the game. But first you need to click two strange pop-ups. :)

A longish haul, but now everything works at the cBlorb end if the story title and/or the file path the project contains a quotation mark. The only thing still not working is that Parchment appears to crash on being invited to play a project in-brower if the file-path contains a quotation mark; but I think this is Parchment rather than cBlorb going awry. It's not very urgent to fix this, of course.
