Subject Re: [Announce] Escaping double quotation marks in XSL
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2007 16:27:30 GMT
I don't like the idiom either. I agree that any other solution would be
better.  It made my stomach turn to suggest it.

Other suggestions for a solution?

I *REALLY* detest that idiom. I've seen many people hurt themselves by
trying to hand-generate XML; I consider it a very bad practice. Unless
you're forced to do it in order to work with a downstream tool which has
not been implemented correctly, I would recommend finding another solution.
Any other solution.
