Link Collection data crashes page fetching

Vote:
 

An editor was able to save a page that crashes all calls where it's PageData is fetched. This is what our error handler logs:

System.Xml.XmlException

'

', hexadecimal value 0x0B, is an invalid character. Line 1, position 907.

Stacktrace:

   at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Throw(String res, String[] args)

   at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ParseText(Int32& startPos, Int32& endPos, Int32& outOrChars)

   at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.ParseText()

   at EPiServer.SpecializedProperties.PropertyLinkCollection.FromLongString(String str)

I wrote some code that found the PageLink.ID of the page causing the crash. When searching for the ID I found a � symbol in that crash which I recall can have something to do the exception type. The page was deleted before I got the chance to copy the prop value from the DB directly.

Anyone else seen this?

I think I've seen somthing similar several years ago but I don't recall much details... If I remember correctly the editor had copied text from Word and pasted in the editor. We solved it by clearing the property in the database.
