Subject Re: Tags in the value of an XSLT variable?
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2008 12:19:04 GMT
Hi Andy:

I am not sure how JAVA handles an XML snippet but if you are passing the
snippet as variable you should be able to cast it as a string.  If
not you could try encapsulating it at CDATA section and the parser
will ignore anything in the CDATA section:

<a>My XML</a>
