I may have found a bug with processing style elements and converting special characters. I have the following text field in a sub-report:
ListItem contains '&' characters that are converted to "&" before the report is created. The conversion works fine, but it looks like Jasper reports computes whether or not the text field will fit inside the report element before the "&" is converted back to '&'. My text field gets truncated even though there should be plenty of space left in the report element.
