Subject Formatting HTML text using javadoc "bottom" parameter
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2001 14:22:05 GMT

I've now got the whole <javadoc/> rigmarole working correctly in the master
build.xml file for my project. One item puzzles me, however. The code
example in the Ant User Manual gives an example of the bottom  parameter as

bottom="<i>Copyright &#169; 2000 Dummy Corp. All Rights Reserved.</i>">

However, when I try to throw the italics HTML formatting tag into my own
javadoc task's bottom parameter, I receive the following error:


C:\latest\starman\projects\Master\build.xml:489: The value of attribute
"bottom must not contain the '<' character.

No huge deal, obviously, but I was just curious as to whether or not I am
missing the bigger picture. Any thoughts?
