Hi, Jacob thanks for your suggestion, i also thought of that, but i didn't work either, as the guys creating the xmlpropertyfile are using jdom for xmloutput. seems like jdom automatically writes < for < and > for > so it get's <![CDATA[<bla>foobar</bla>]]> which doesn't work. But finally i solved it with = switching back to old format, so the xmlproperty i get from the webapp looks like = <bla>foobar</bla> then echo all properties i want in my mail to a file with ... a lot of

and
for formatting ]]> and later in mail task i use messagemimetype="text/html" Before i had a file in simple txtformat and no messagemimetype so automatically text/plain was used. Now all my tags appear as < and > in mailbody Regards, Gilbert -----Original Message----- From: Jakob Fix [mailto:jakob.fix@gmail.com] Sent: Friday, February 03, 2006 10:45 AM To: Ant Users List Subject: Re: replace < with < in property ??

I haven't tested this, though. In general, converting xml by hand or regexp should be avoided and be done by the parser. -- cheers, Jakob. --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: user-unsubscribe@ant.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: user-help@ant.apache.org --------------------------------------------------------------------- To unsubscribe, e-mail: user-unsubscribe@ant.apache.org For additional commands, e-mail: user-help@ant.apache.org
