Why are those punctuation symbols illegal in XML, anyway? They are not illegal AFAIK. What probably happens is that they are usually encoded in UTF-16 in Word files and when copied through the clipboard. If the application which puts the characters into the target file is not smart about converting them to the the encoding declared for the file, and perhaps writing them as character references, the XML parser will have trouble reading them. Parsers are not required to deal with unannounced changes in the character encoding of their input. J.Pietschmann
