Subject RE: XTAGS space amp; space problem
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2001 16:40:21 GMT



To reproduce the possible space_ampersand_space problem with XTAGS...

- Take the Simple RSS Example

- Either create an RSS file who's <link> tags contain ampersand-included
links such as;

A simple way to do this is to just save the RSS file to disk
and alter the URL's to include ampersands.

- Next point the Simple RSS example parser/transform at your contrived RSS
file and see if the URL's break.

Hi Howard

I've never noticed that before. Could you give us an example of how to
reproduce this problem?
