Re: encoding shift_jis into an attribute
Hey Matthew, If you set the output to XML and then add omit-xml-declaration="yes" (this ensures that the <?xml version="1.0"?> is not included in the output) you the you can take advantage of the fact that in xml <a href="..."> is seen as nothing more than an element and attribute with an associated value and not a URI. So adding this element to your stylesheet: <xsl:output method="xml" omit-xml-declaration="yes"/> Will solve the URI escaping issue but will require you to ensure that you output HTML correctly, though well formed HTML it may be. This does create possible issues with being backwards compatible with older browsers. Will your clients be viewing this output in a current generation browser? <M:D/> ----- Original Message ----- From: "Matthew Simoneau" <Matthew.Simoneau@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: <xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Thursday, June 03, 2004 10:08 AM Subject: RE: encoding shift_jis into an attribute Thanks Josh and David for your replies. I understand a little more about what's going on. In the original XML-file, these characters are shift_jis encoded Unicode. XSLT is helping me convert this file to HTML. As text on the page, XSLT wants them to display properly and escapes them using their numeric character references, "数学". In the context of the href attribute, it wants them to be part of a valid URI and is URI encoding them as "%E6%95%B0%E5%AD%A6". What I want is to work around this feature and get the numeric character reference representation within an href attribute. This may be a bad idea for a general web page or general URI, but makes sense in my application. If I change href to anything else, it leaves the numeric character references, but then of course my links don't work. I found references on the web that this is a feature of Saxon that can be turned off, but I can't figure out how. Does anyone have any ideas about how to attack this? --+------------------------------------------------------------------ XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list To unsubscribe, go to: http://lists.mulberrytech.com/xsl-list/ or e-mail: <mailto:xsl-list-unsubscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> --+--
