Text attribute values and enumeration values of custom documentation in the Automated Web Interface (AWI) version 12.0.0 doesn't allow special characters.

Investigation

The only charaters allowed are:
  • A-Z
  • 0-9
  • _ (underscore)
  • . (period)
  • - (hyphen)
  • : (semicolon)
These should be the restrictions for the attribute names, but not for the values. In the Java UserInterface (UI) it was possible to use all characters for the values.
