HTML and XML
I am trying to solve this issue and ask something like this once before, but I still can't figure it out. I have a content system (Divine) and I want to create an XML file (RDF actually) and it would have the following structure. The problem is in-between the <thebody> tags. <!-- xml version="1.0"? --> <!DOCTYPE portal PUBLIC "" "some.dtd"> <portal> <channel> <name>opmTrivia.rdf</name> <title>Claims Trivia</title> <trivia> <pubdate>2002-07-26 00:00:00</pubdate> <archdate>2002-08-05 00:00:00</archdate> <expiredate>2003-08-05 00:00:00</expiredate> <id>1027684634091</id> <title>Where can you find historical weather data?</title> <description></description> <thebody> I want to embedd HTML here without having the parser change all the <html></html> to <html> I don't want to use an xsl here because of where we are getting the content from. any ideas? </thebody> </trivia> </channel> </portal> Regards, Travis D.
