Subject Re: encoding problem with xslt
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2002 13:14:15 GMT
Hello Thorsten,

there was a bug in Xalan with URL encoding more than a half year ago, but I 
don't know what's the current status.

> <xsl:template match='c[@color="blue"]'>
>   <xsl:element name="a">
>     <xsl:attribute  name="href">
>      frameset.xsp?filename=<xsl:value-of   
> select="@sourcefile"/>&amp;searchstring=<xsl:value-of   
> disable-output-escaping="yes" select="."/>
>     </xsl:attribute>
>     <xsl:value-of select="."/>
>   </xsl:element>
> </xsl:template>
> <xsl:stylesheet>

You can remove disable-output-escaping, because it has no effect in Cocoon 
and should not been used generally, because it's an optional function in XSLT.

Furthermore you can rewrite your code as

<a href="frameset.xsp?filename={@sourcefile}&amp;searchstring={.}">
   <xsl:value-of select="."/>

It's maybe more readable.

It looks not really bad to me. I don't know exactly to which %XX the a 
umlaut should be transformed correctly and whether to one %XX or two, but it 
looks not wrong.

This is definitely not correct. You can't use a entity in URL.

deactivated in Cocoon

deactivated in Cocoon, you do this in the sitemap as you did it correctly

> -setting the encoding in the sitemap <map:transformer ...> -> no success

Definitely not at <map:transformer>, but <map:serializer>. What I don't know 
is, whether it works at the pipe or only at <map:serializer> in <map:components>

makes no difference, at least with Xalan.
