I want to convert an XML file into RTF using XSLT (or any other
I have output an XML file from the database system. At present I have used a
RTF containing a blank filled table as a template and replaced bits of it
with XSLT which populate the data parts from my XML. This works fine.
However in order that my export from the database is valid and well formed I
have escaped all the ampersands, quotes, apostrohies, and angle bracket to
&, ", etc.
Using Saxon I have found that the " and &apos get replaced with
apostrophe and quote (which is great), but the brackets and ampersands stay
escaped. It would be better for me if this did not happen since Word cannot
understand the escaped version and they come out raw (& etc). These
characters could exist in any field in the XML, therefore I cannot use:
<xsl:text disable-output-escaping="yes" | "no"></xsl:text> since I assume
this cannot be placed around the whole document.
Does anyone know how to get these characters converted back to the original
characters for output into the rtf file?
