Subject disable-output-escaping needed in this situation?
Date Fri, 15 Jun 2001 17:20:37 GMT
I am trying to generate some Javascript with an XSLT stylesheet. I have 
to generate it with the stylesheet and put it in the document because 
the values that go into the Javascript function calls come from the data 
in the XML file itself. I am also putting HTML into the function calls, 
so this means that I must use ' to quote the strings (otherwise the " 
around the attributes in the HTML tags would confuse the Javascript 
parser). However, some of the data I am pulling from the XML files has 
apostrophes in it already, and I need to be able to include those in the 
final output. However, Cocoon insists on changing &apos; into '. This 
also confuses the Javascript parser. The apostrophes in the XML are 
entities (&apos;) so it would be ideal if I could tell Cocoon to stop 
turning them into '. I can't change the XML files so that they all say 
&amp;apos; (nor would I want to, yuck!), so what am I supposed to do? It 
doesn't seem like disable-output-escaping would be "bad programming 
practice" in this instance. Maybe I'm rushing to judgment here, but it 
seems that it was a poor design decision to *disable* something you 
think a "bad programming practice." After all, goto's in C still compile 
and work, but no C programmer worth her salt would *ever* use one, and 
that's because over the years we have more or less proven you can do 
anything w/o goto's that you can do with them, only better. If someone 
knows a way I can do this with the functionality already in Cocoon, I'll 
recant... :-)
