Nilesh ChavanSubject: how to preserve the & in XSLT
Author: Nilesh Chavan
Date: 02 Jun 2011 10:57 AM

Here's my requirement.

My input to the XSLT is a document which has '&' entity. I want the same entity in the output of XSLT after the XSLT transaformation as '&'.

At the moment my XSLT is replacing '&' with '&' in the o/p. I want the XSLT to preserve & as & only.

Please advise how this can be achieved.

I tried including following 2 things in my XSLT:

1.<!DOCTYPE stylesheet [
<!ENTITY amp "&#38">
2. <!DOCTYPE stylesheet [
<!ENTITY amp "<xsl:text disable-output-escaping='yes'>&amp;amp; </xsl:text>">

But this is not working. Still i got '&' in the output. Please advise. I need it urgently. Thanks!!

The following behaves as expected


<?xml version='1.0'?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="xml"/>
<xsl:template match="/">
<xsl:value-of select="'&amp;'"/>

XML Output

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' ?>
