Subject Re: Putting markup in the message of an echo task
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2007 05:45:07 GMT
Hmm... I just tried this with no problem. Do you want the "<" and ">"
in the file you're creating? Then, I found this works:

<echo message="&lt;p&gt;&#123;latest.error&#125;" file="${filename}"
append="true"/>

Notice no spaces...
