   Re: [xml-dev] sax and entities

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

[Scott Purcell]
I am parsing the XML (below class file) which has entity references in the
file: eg: ® .
The xml has entity references to turn &reg to its equivalent. But instead of
parsing, I get the following error:
exception: org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: invalid Character Entitiy

Has anyone had this issue with entities? Maybe I am handling this

The  file you included has two well-formedness errors -

<!ENTITY ldquo """>
<!--EM left dbl quote than -->
<!ENTITY rdquo """>

Change the surrounding quotes to single quotes and it becomes well-formed
and valid (if you supply the end tag for the document element, that is)..

BTW, when you get error messages you do not understand, try other tools
becaues sometimes their messages are more helpful.
