Subject RE: How to avoid the encoded text &#220 in pdf generation
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 12:57:01 GMT
You have to tweak your XSP that it produces the equivalent of 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Any effort to use XSLT for unwinding the double escaped

      &amp;#220; ==> &#220; ==> Ü

is futile.  

You should look whether the text is already like this in the database, 
or whether it is modified by the JDBC driver reading XML data.

HTH, Alfred.

Subject: How to avoid the encoded text &#220 in pdf generation 


My cocoon 2.1.9 runs on a suse linux computer with java version "1.4.2_11".
I use fo2pdf serializer to generate pdf files from xml files, which I use
xsp to generate from a MySQL (Version 4.1.13) database. The pdf-generation
runs without errors, but in the generated pdf files there are text like
"&#220;bung", which should be "Übung".

For the sake of simplicity, I give a short example to describe my situation
and forget the step of generating xml from xsp intentionally. 

Given that, we have already a xml file like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
