VERY special characters :)
Hello! I have now looked through the FAQ at: http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/xslfaq.html And althought it was a rather enlightening and interesting experience, and quite comprehensive, I can't really find anything directly relevant to what I want. Short version: I want to output a control-character (0x00-0x1f) with output method "text". It's not letting me... :( Long version: I'm trying to generate a java file from an xml file, by running the xml file through XSLT with a .xsl document to transform it. The input XML file is perfectly fine xml. The problem is in the .xsl document. I have this setting in my .xsl file: <xsl:output encoding="ISO_8859-1" omit-xml-declaration="yes" method="text" /> I tried to do this by doing the following in my xxx.xsl file to get a form-feed: <xsl:text>
</xsl:text> ...but this is not a valid XML character, I'm informed. Well... I don't care! :) I want a form-feed in my java file. Period. Now I'm wondering, how do I do that? Please tell me I _can_ do it :-\ And now for something not complete different... :) Another interesting thing I found while playing around with this was that the statement in the XSLT spec does not really apply as stated (at least for apache's "xalan-J") when it says that "text" output mode does not escape characters (is says so in the "disable-output-escaping" help on the <xsl:text> tag)... Proof: If i instead of my illegal "
" put a "§", to get a paragrah sign, it is gladly swallowed. I get out "§" in the output document, however, and not a paragraph sign as expected with my settings of encoding="ISO_8859-1" and method="text"! :-( Could anyone explain that to me?
