RE: RE: displaying characters
Thanks very much thats kind of what i read before i just wondered if there was a way around it, currently we put in a unique char and use perl (as we use gnomes libxsl perl XML::LibXSL) but we were trying to get around that. Without moving to an xml 1.1 parser then i guess this is the only real option? Is it recommended to use xml 1.1 at this time? -----Original Message----- From: David Carlisle [mailto:davidc@xxxxxxxxx] Sent: 16 December 2004 11:44 To: xsl-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: RE: displaying characters You can not access those characters in XML 1.0 so you can't generate or reference them at all in an pure XSLT stylesheet in the beginning xt had an extension (the nchar output method if I recall correctly) which allowed a certain element markup in the result tree to be linearised as control characters. XML 1.1 does allow these characters to be referenced as numeric character refetrences, so if you can find an XSLt system hooked on to an XML 1.1 parser, that would probably work. Or just output [[[char=1]] and post-process with sed or perl or something. I assume you are generating text output, if you are generating XML output then you need to generate XML 1.1 not XML 1.0. (version="1.1" on xsl:output, but I doubt that works on any XSLT 1.0 system.
