      Description

      If a folder name contains an apostrophe or single-quote and that folder was created or named using WebDAV, then when viewing the site "Resources" the apostrophe ends up in the javascript link without being escaped. This causes the link to fail, a user clicking on the folder name will not be able to access the contents of the folder.

      Tested using WebDAV from a Macintosh, and from Windows XP, same results.

      Removing the apostrophe from the name only works to restore folder access if it is also done through WebDAV.

      Since apostrophes are correctly escaped when items are named within the "Resources" tool, a workaround for people who do most of their work in WebDAV is to create (or rename) the folders without the apostrophes via WebDAV, then use the "Resources" web interface to rename them with the apostrophes.
