Replacing XML Tags

Postby dblaze » Fri Feb 17, 2006 5:58 am

Hi All,

I need to insert a fixed string of characters before the actual tag value in an XML file. Here's what I want to do:

<anothertag />

needs to look like:

<cmn:anothertag />

I need the 'cmn:' inserted after the < or </ and before tag name. The / in the ending tag is causing me the trouble.

Any suggestions?
