Need help rendering the HTML residing within the XML
1 <book> 2 <name><b>Count of Monte Cristo</b></name> 3 <author>Alexander Dumas</author> 4 <content /> 5 </book>
I need my XSL file to parse the XML so that the browser (IE 6+, NN 7+) will take these <b></b> tags and apply the appropiate HTML formatting rather than treating them as XML nodes.
The browser seems to like character entity equivalents such as in line 2 below and renders the <name> node in bold when I have disable-output-escaping set to "yes".
1 <book> 2 <name><b>Count of Monte Cristo</b></name> 3 <author>Alexander Dumas</author> 4 <content /> 5 </page>
but the chances of getting character entitiy equivalents into my XML file vs. brackets are slim to none.
Does this mean I'd have to write a query function within the XSL that goes through every node in my XML file looking for regular HTML tags? Wouldn't this take forever to parse considering I could have upwards of a hundred nodes in my XML? Is there something I'm missing? Does anybody know of an article or link that address my problem?
Many many thanks!
