RE: character entity references; saxon ie 6.0 differen
Brook, Sorry, I guess I should have specified I have the entity defined as <!ENTITY eacute "é" ><!--=small e, acute accent --> in external files (along with most of the other possible entities) which are included in the doctype declaration.

You should use the equivalent entity from the UTF-16 character set. This URL is convenient for finding the common character codes: http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/demos/ansi.html This URL has far greater scope if you ever need to find a less common code: http://www.alanwood.net/unicode/search.html In theory, if you are using a Unicode-aware text editor, you can set the encoding of your file to UTF-16 (or UTF-8) and just type the characters in without using the entities, but I've had pretty lousy luck getting that to work all the way to the browser. For now, you're safer to use the entities. -- Brook -----Original Message----- From: Whitney, Dan (CanWest Interactive) [mailto:DWhitney@xxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: August 26, 2003 1:00 PM To: 'mulberry - xsl' Subject: character entity references; saxon ie 6.0 differences Sorry forgot to add a subject to my intial post. I have the following XML fragment: <RECORDITEM sqlsource="cityprov" colname="col4">Montréal, QC<RECORDREF>specialannual</RECORDREF></RECORDITEM> I want my output to be: <td>Montréal</td><td>specialannual</td> My xsl is: <xsl:for-each select="RECORDITEM"> <td align="right"> <font face="verdana" size="1"> <xsl:value-of select="text()"/> </font> </td> <td align="right"> <font face="verdana" size="1"> <xsl:value-of select="RECORDREF"/> </font> </td> </xsl:for-each> When I use ie 6.0 to open this the entity "é" is not interpreted as text? so I get something like the following: <td align="right>Montr</td><td align="right">specialannual</td> When I translate it with saxon everything comes out as I want. Which is correct and can I write my XSL to overcome the discrepancy?
