Exactly what you are looking for....I haven't read thru
everything, but help yourself.

Q: I have content like <company>Harris & George</company> in my XML document -- will the "&"
be seen as a special character?

Thankyou all.....
This is what i found out
if i give <Manufacturernamed>johnson&johnson<MnaufacturerName>
It extracts the value as johnson
but if i give <ManufacturerName>johnson&johnson<Manufacturername>
it extracts johnson&johnson
why is this hapenning...and also if we dont want our users who are support staff to enter something as complicated as johnson&johnson.....what is it we can do to substitute this value when ever we see a "&"....can we do this in the DTD....
<!DOCTYPE rootelem [
<!ENTITY name "value">
i CAM ACROSS this....but this is for a specific tag
if i wanted to generalize this thro the whole doc what can i do???
