   RE: [xml-dev] XML Problem

Ok well I am using SAX/expat for this particular document. Anyway, I am not

	function charcterPro($parser, $data)
		global $TAG;

		switch ($currentTag)
	case "TAG1":
	$TAG  =  $data;



That will get "SOME TEXT" into the variable tag, but as I stated before it
will not work in cases such as example 1.

You do not say how you are trying to process the xml file.  Typically
programs run into trouble like this because they think that the text will

would be a poor assumption.  The text may actually be delivered in several
chunks.  In this case, you might get [NEWLINE]SOME TEXT[NEWLINE].

Whether SAX, DOM or some other system, you must always make sure that you
collect (or traverse) all pieces that could contain the character data of an
