Re: To avoid converting html entities
I agree the xml data source is a horror, but it's part of a SOAP response from a webservice.. and I don't have any influence :( What I'm trying to do is: output this same data as the value of a hidden element in a form. When the user submits the form, this exact data has to be passed to the next web service call..
