Re: Move elements to preceding parent
I have another question regarding this. I want to be able to control the valid ending paragraph characters from a config file in xml. How can I read the set [.?"!] from an external xml? - say something like: <ParagraphTerminator> <Char>.</Char> <Char>?</Char> <Char>"</Char> <Char>!</Char> </ParagraphTerminator> or any other xml representation that will be easy to read as the set in the regular expression.
