   Re: [xml-dev] problem with #&233; characters and such in URL

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I am evaulating movie collector software which support xml output. ATM I am toying with Collectorz.com Movie Collector, albeit they don't seem to fully support XMLST, at least no javascript at all afaik.

Anyway, as I said the xml output generates a href links like this:
<a href="/Name?Escand&#243;n,+Jos&#233;">Jos&#233; Escand&#243;n</a>

in IE it will end up like this (notice the decimals are reverted back to ASCII):
which works just fine

in Opera it will end up like this
which will not work. Might be an Opera specific problem? Haven't tested this with Netscape or on other OS platforms.

So I guess to be compatible with all browsers I need to use HEX instead of DECIMAL code sequences for special chars? There must be one simple command to encode the output so that special characters are escaped hexadecimal instead of decimal, no?

If not then I guess I'll have to use IE for now, ergh.
