XML attribute delimiters?

Post by DFH » Sun Nov 06, 2011 8:09 pm

The XML schema permits both the double quote chr(22) and the apostrophe chr(27) to be used to delimit attribute values.

Does TextPipe restrict the delimiter to chr(22) ? If so, then the documentation does not mention this.

You may wish to review how the XML/HTML filters work in the light of my observation.

Hi David - both double quote chr(22) and the apostrophe chr(27) can be used. It also works with no delimiter at all, for a value not containing any whitespace.

The docy does mention this, but I will clarify it.
