   RE: [xml-dev] XML web programming using VB

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

OK, I'll have to make a few assumptions here :

	1. I guess you are writing to an html document.
	2. You are showing the actual screen output and not the source of
the resulting document.

So givent those assumptions I guess that <xmp> will be written to the
document without escaping the < and > while x.xml will do the escaping (i.e.
replacing the < with &lt; and the > with &gt;) - look at the resulting
source to see if this guess is right.

However, a HTML document is not neccessarily the right way to write out xml,
try the xmlDoc.Save method or write the string returned by x.xml to a file
manually. Or if you need to do something like your code suggests use the
XMLWriter to write out a correct xml document.

However, if your need to incorporate the xml into your page as a data island
look at the XML-element supported by IE 5+.

Hope that helps
