Re: Mysterious 'invalid character'
> My file is well-formed and valid against the DTD when I check it (within > XMLSpy). No error message there. are you sure that isn't also using the same msxml parser with the same bug? > What am I supposed to look for? a character in the ascii control range below space (32) that isn't a tab (9) carrage return or line feed (10 or 13). Any reasonable editor will show these in some form or other. Also try a different parser, for example the excellent (and free) rxp parser says, if I try to add a control-B to a file: $ rxp -s bad.xml Error: illegal character <0x2> immediately before file offset 11 I/O error on stream <file:///c:/tmp/bad.xml>, ignore further errors which tells you what the bad character is (#x02) and where it is (11 characters into the file) rxp is a trivial download/install or you can run it online (on small examples, to be kind to their server:-) http://www.cogsci.ed.ac.uk/~richard/rxp.html David _____________________________________________________________________ This message has been checked for all known viruses by Star Internet delivered through the MessageLabs Virus Scanning Service.
