Subject Re: XML Serializers [was: XMLSerializer replaces tabs with &#9; ]
Date Thu, 09 Dec 2004 16:05:31 GMT
Dear All

I just migrated our projects to 2.1.6 and found that they were severely 
affected by this new behaviour as all our generated XHTML has escaped 
tabs, quotes etc. Thus I'd (I think we all do) appreciate clarity on 
what the correct (and expected) behaviour of the serialisation is.

In the meantime (since I wouldn't want to miss all the new, nice changes 
in 2.1.6) I found an almost workaround (have tried only with the XHTML 
serialiser) which requires only minor changes to the XSLs:

<map:serializer mime-type="text/html" name="xhtml" 
    <doctype-public>-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN</doctype-public>

The only caveat is that in javascripts quotes are still escaped, which 
can be taken care of however by enclosing them with <xsl:comment>.

I hope I'm not too much off-topic
