   Re: [xml-dev] html file as a xml contents

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

xml packets? is that some new entity from the MS factory?

well do you want to send the content as text, with escaped <, > etc, or as
markup? if you choose the latter then the content has to be well-formed
xml. I believe you can use w3c Tidy to make sure the html is well-formed.
otherwise, either process the content to escape all characters that need
escaping (typically '<' and '&', and why not '>' too) or put the whole
text in as CDATA.
like so:
  <contents><![CDATA[All the contents of the badly marked-up html file]]></contents>

escaping is done by replacing reserved characters with character entity
references, for example replace '<' with '&lt;'
