RE: XSLT Disable-Output-Escaping Not Working
Don't use disable-output-escaping if you don't understand it. It's a way of generating invalid XML or HTML for use in the rare occasions where that's what you need to do. It's doing just that here, which means it IS working, and isn't what you want. Michael Kay > -----Original Message----- > From: Shelli D.
