      Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Symptoms:
      On the Page Properties Report macro either:

      A) Content is missing:

      B) Columns are duplicated:

      Cause:
      When manually modifying a Page Properties table, a hidden tag (like <p> or <span>) might be present in the field text, making fields with same text be treated as different. This also makes impossible to list a column by it's name.

      See the differences in the Storage Format of:

      Project Page 3 <SPAN>
      <ac:structured-macro ac:name="details"><ac:rich-text-body>
      <table><tbody><tr>
      <td><p>Priority</p></td>
      ....
      </tr>
      <tr>
      <td><span>Status</span></td>
      ....
      

      vs

      Project Page 1
      <ac:structured-macro ac:name="details"><ac:rich-text-body>
      <table><tbody><tr>
      <td>Priority</td>
      ....
      </tr>
      <tr>
      <td>Status</td>
      ...
      

      So:

      • in A) there is a Column Filter applied (Status, Priority) but the Report doesn't find those Columns in "Project Page 3 <SPAN>" because those fields have other characters in it.
      • in B) the columns are listed separately because although they look the same, they are different to the Report macro.

      Expected:

      • Special tags to be ignored. If rows look the same, to be treated like the same.

      Steps to reproduce:
      To get the <p> or <span> values in the table you have to:

      1. Write two lines of text anywhere on the page
      2. Copy the lines inside the table
        Editing the field names from now on, will keep the <p> or <span> value on them.

      Workaround:

      • Remove the table's row and create it again, for every row with the problem.
