Hi all,
I have problem parsing my XML file that contains tag with numeric and special characters.

eg. I have tag like <192.111.7.163> representing an IP address.

Is there another way to write same address in XML. I am using DOM parser.

Thanks in advance

Personally, I would write this as:

<IPAddress>192.111.7.163</IPAddress>

or

<IPAddress value="192.111.7.163"/>

depending on what you want to do.
Since this is a variable thing (my assumption),
you don't want to represent this value as an element.
