Adam EricksonSubject: Attribute Entity Expansion on Intent
Author: Adam Erickson
Date: 15 Jun 2007 06:05 PM
Looking through the forums, there seems to be a longstanding issue with the "Indent XML Tags" feature where it automatically expands entities when they're in attribute values. This seems to go back to at least 2003. Am I missing a setting or is there a workaround that has been added since that time? I would like to see the following line behavior:

<!ENTITY myEntity "This is the text of myEntity">

Before Indent:
<myParentElement>
<myElement myAttribute="&myEntity;"/>
</myParentElement>

After Indent:
<myParentElement>
<myElement myAttribute="&myEntity;"/>
</myParentElement>


as opposed to the current behavior which is...
Before Indent:
<myParentElement>
<myElement myAttribute="&myEntity;"/>
</myParentElement>

After Indent:
<myParentElement>
<myElement myAttribute="This is the text of myEntity"/>
</myParentElement>

I'm using Stylus Enterprise 2007 build 735e.

Thanks,
Adam

Hi Adam,
unfortunately that limitation is still present in Stylus, as it stems from the behavior of the XML parser being used.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
