Josh FullerSubject: Ascii "separator" characters
Author: Josh Fuller
Date: 19 May 2005 10:36 AM

I'd like my stylesheet to output text which includes the special 'separator' characters... 'group separator', 'record separator', etc. These are Ascii values 28 - 31.


<?xml version='1.0' ?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
<xsl:output method="text" encoding="ascii7">
<xsl:template match="/">
Name:<xsl:value-of select="Test/Name"/>&#29;

This results in an error "Invalid character reference". Is there any encoding that allows me to reference character values below 32, or any other way of referencing these characters?

XSLT can't generate those, since they aren't a part of XML 1.0.
If you designed a custom adapter, you could catch, say, a PI,
and convert it. So you could do <?ascii 11?> or something to get
code VT as an example.

There is a tutorial on writing a custom adapter at
http://www.stylusstudio.com/custom_adapter.html that shows how to
write the toXML side; the fromXML side works similarly except that
use get an XML stream and you can use a SAX processor to read it
and generate your output.
