What's the difference? Well, there's no difference; David was mistaken; XHTML, as an XML application, implicitly defines apos and also explicitly defines it in its DTD, as you noted. HTML, however, does not define apos at all. To escape ' in an attribute value in HTML, one must write '. In XSLT-land, this is only of concern to the HTML serializer, if it happens to use ' to delimit attribute values. - Mike ____________________________________________________________________________ mike j. brown | xml/xslt: http://skew.org/xml/ denver/boulder, colorado, usa | resume: http://skew.org/~mike/resume/ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
