   RE: [xml-dev] Insert HTML Page into XML CDATA Tag

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm not sure why you are using a CDATA section... except that the contents of the CDATA section might not be well-formed in some cases. I'm also not sure what your stylesheet looks like but "xsl:value-of" and "xsl:text" elements can take a "disable-output-escaping='yes'" attribute that should take care of your problem. Something like the following should work.

<xsl:template match="/resources">
   <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="html"/>

Subject: [xml-dev] Insert HTML Page into XML CDATA Tag

Hi Guy
I have a very big problem.
I create a little web site and I use XSL + XML to produce output.Now I 
want to add a part of html page into xml tag to use a custom page section.
But i find a problme,

see the example :

I use this xml :

    <html><![CDATA[<B>Hello World</B>]]></html>

trasform xml with xsl page
and my output into html browser is &lt;B&gt;Hello World&lt;/B&gt;
my  BOLD html tag is not parse by browser  because xslt parser trasform 
my special tag into other tag. I want obtin this output :
<b>Hello World</b>

Can you help me ?

this is my trasformation function :

private Transformer getXSLTransformer (xslFile) throws 
XSLTransformerConfigurationException {
    try {
        Transformer transformer = null;
        tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
        transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(new 
StreamSource(xslFile)); // load xslFile from disk
    } catch (TransformerConfigurationException tce) {
        throw new XSLTransformerConfigurationException(tce.getMessage());
    return transformer;

public String myTrasform(String xml,String xslFile) throws Exception {
    StringWriter outputString = new StringWriter(512);
    Transformer transformer = getXSLTransformer (xslFile);
    transformer.transform(new StreamSource(new StringReader(xml)), new 
    return outputString.toString();

Thank's in advance.
