im generating an XML file dynamically from oracle database from ASP.its working for simple data like numbers,date etc and i could show that data as HTML output. the problem is, the data itself contains special characters like & as part of the data,which in turn comes to my XML file. so i could not generate HTML output (not well formatted structure) i couldnt modify the database. what modifications i have to do in my ASP code? i couldnt modify the XML file since it is created dynamically... thanks in advance..
