Re: XSLT/XML and HTML Tags in the XML Data
| I am using Oracle's Parser for XML/XSLT to display search results. We have | some fields in our database that has HTML tags in the data to emphasize the | text in the browser. A good example of this is to have parts of data being | bold using <STRONG> tag, or displaying information using bullets with <UL> | tags. I create XML using this data, and when I send the XML to the XSLT | processor, I don't get any results back if there are any HTML tags in the | data. Would need to see your templates that are selecting the data to format to help explain this symptom. | Is there any way I can have the XSLT processor to ignore the HTML Tags? The typical FAQ in this area is that if you are generating query results that contain HTML fragments like: <ROWSET> <ROW> <SKU>12345</SKU> <DESC>Big Red Apple</DESC> <BLURB> <ul> <li><b>Delicious</b></li> <li><b>Nutritious</b></li> </ul> </BLURB> </ROW> </ROWSET> And you want the HTML "blurb" to showup "verbatim" in the output: for this you'd use (assuming the current node is "ROWSET/ROW"): <xsl:value-of disable-output-escaping="yes" select="BLURB"/> This will produce: <ul> <li><b>Delicious</b></li> <li><b>Nutritious</b></li> </ul> ______________________________________________________________ Steve Muench, Lead XML Evangelist & Consulting Product Manager BC4J & XSQL Servlet Development Teams, Oracle Rep to XSL WG Author "Building Oracle XML Applications", O'Reilly http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/orxmlapp/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
