   entity references for special characters and the Sax parser

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

> Hi,
> 	Has anyone else used the Sax parser to parse a given XML file with the Java method
> <saxParser>.parse(<filename>)?  If I call this with a file that has an ampersand in it (e.g. &amp;), the rest of the
> text within that value on either side of the special character will be cut off (I verified this by seeing what appears
> in the "characters" method).  Has anyone else observed this behavior?
	For example, if I have <tag1>abcd&amp;defg</tag1>, the resulting value for tag1 will be "abcd" or "defg".  If I
have <tag2>&amp;&gt;</tag2>, the resulting value would be ">".

	I am using Xerces Java 1, version 1.3.0 (although version 1.4.4 seems to behave the same as 1.3.0 in this case).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

> - Mark
