Subject Hex character escaping.
Date Sat, 08 Feb 2003 15:36:32 GMT
Can I use the "&#x<hex number>" format to escape characters when I specify
values in Ant?
For example I need to have this executed:

<pathconvert targetos="windows" pathsep="&#xA" property ="build.list"

In other words instead of the default OS path separator I need a line-feed
(#xA). When run this produces an "Illegal hexadecimal character reference"
error. I also tried to escpae the letter "A" in an <echo
message="...&#x41..."/> task but it yelded the same result.
