You may need to search for either the decimal entity or hex entity depending
on a variety of mysterious (to me) factors.
No, numeric character references are not enetities.
Whether you use the hex or decimal form or just enter the character
directy doesn't make any difference to the XSLT system, as by the time
it sees it they are all just a single charactere. They are handled by
the XML parser before XSLT starts.
You may need to find the hex or decimal equivalent for ".
No. You can enter " or " or " and any XML application will not
be able to tell the difference. In particular XSLT can not distinguish
these. You only need to use &qot; (or equivalently ") if you are
using " to surround attribute values and want a " in the value
is just another way of writing
You would not be able to distinguish these using XSLT.
