v cSubject: how to parse a html element for apostrophe
Author: v c
Date: 25 Jan 2008 07:23 PM
Hello,

I have an XML file and one of the nodes contain an image tag. The problem is that the image filename or the ALT text can have an apostrophe and it terminates abnormally in the javascript array once loaded in my HTML page.

I am calling a template to fix quotes as such...

This works:

<xsl:call-template name="fixquotes"><xsl:with-param name="string" select="description/node()"/></xsl:call-template>

This doesn't:

<xsl:call-template name="fixquotes"><xsl:with-param name="string" select="topImage/node()"/></xsl:call-template>


How can I convert the image tag into a string(a non node) and then pass it to the fixquotes template?

Once that is done will my image tag still render on the HTML side? How do I accomplish this.

Here is the template I am using to fixquotes.

<xsl:template name="fixquotes">
<xsl:param name="string"/>
<xsl:choose>
<xsl:when test="contains($string, &quot;'&quot;)">
<xsl:value-of select="substring-before($string, &quot;'&quot;)"/>
<xsl:text>\'</xsl:text>
<xsl:call-template name="fixquotes">
<xsl:with-param name="string"
select="substring-after($string, &quot;'&quot;)"/>
</xsl:call-template>
</xsl:when>
<xsl:otherwise>
<xsl:value-of select="$string"/>
</xsl:otherwise>
</xsl:choose>
</xsl:template>

Here is an example of my XML:

<root>
<GalleryPictures>
<Picture>
<topImage><img src="/images/JohnO'DoulsMugShot.jpg" alt="John O'Douls Mug Shot"></topImage>
<description>This is a picture of John O'Doul.</description>
<Picture>
</GalleryPictures>
</root>

If there is a better way of doing this please tell.

Thanks
VC

Have you tried adding a /text() to your XPath query?
