Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] Question on CDATA in XML


Well...
I am using the apache commons lang  package to encode the special characters (the one remaining after the rtf conversion, like µ). It encodes 'µ' as 'µ'. If I want to have an Unicode hex encoding, I have to stop using it and write my own...
Unless there is another package I can use ?
For my understanding, µ is valid HTML, not XML, that why it is further encoded by the XSLt to 'µ' right ?

Thanks a lot for your help, Dave.

Regards,
Fabien

You need to check your character level encoding throughout,
end to end.
Once it's in XML, &amp; => & etc.
If you want alpha, then use unicode character level encoding,
e.g. & # x 0 3 b 1 ;  (spaced in case it is messed up)

Once in XML that alpha as a character entity is just as valid as any
other character.
Prior to that, it's up to you.
