Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-1812) Illegal characters in XML output
Date Sat, 11 Jan 2014 18:55:52 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-1812?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13868850#comment-13868850

Andreas Lehmkühler commented on PDFBOX-1812:

You are right, those files are producing illegal characters, but not because of a recent change.
The files are all more or less broken and older preflight versions are providing the same
"illegal" output.

> When running Preflight in XML mode, the latest Preflight version (I used the JAR from
build #747) sometimes produces output that contains characters that are illegal in XML. This
can cause unexpected behavior if such files are further processed with tools that expect well-formed
XML.  See attached PDFs, which all result in illegal characters in the description of a 1.0
Syntax error, Error: Expected a long type. Output of older versions of Preflight didn't contain
these illegal characters; instead they would give something like *actual='/O'*, *actual='Pages'*.
etc. So I suppose this must have been caused by a fairly recent change.
