java xml to html
Hi Peter,
But i have the para tags in within the text of the element so there is not need to worry about inserting the tags but now my problem is when i generate an html the tags are show as &lt;p&gt;
thats the problem now is there a way so that i can output the tags as it is and these tags are in the cdata section of the element is ther a way to disable the escaping...

XML doesn't have "fields". Do you mean an element type named "text"?

If you're talking about preserving embedded newlines and tabs, no.
That is not paragraph structure as seen by XML. As ?David said
earlier, if your text guarantees to use only (for example) CR LF TAB
for its "paragraphs", then you may be able to rig up some kind of
interpretation but it won't be XML.

If you want XML to handle what you are calling "paragraphs" then
they MUST be marked up properly. If you want to convert text with
ASCII-indent paragraphs, use a processor like Omnimark, which
has a pattern-matching language specifically for doing this kind of
thing, eg to intrude an end-tag followed by a new start-tag:

   find "%n%n" white-space+
      output "</para>%n<para>"

Then process the resulting file with XSL.
