Property changed type when updating from 5.1 to 6

A couple of weeks ago we upgraded an old 5.1 site to CMS 6. We got a strange error where the rendered content of one page got messed up.

After some investigation we found that a property had got it’s type changed from XhtmlString to Longstring and changing it back to xhtml fixed the rendering.

We didn’t find any other property that had changed type nor did we find any explanation to why this happened.

So when migrating from CMS 5.1 to CMS 6 I guess that a quick check that all of the properties types are still the same is a good idea.
