Hi all,

I've got this script which converts data from a mysql database to an xml object using the DOM and printing it out. Everything works fine, however some of the text contains ampersands (&) which gets printed as '&amp'

here's the script:
PHP Code:
<?
function getdata($type)
{
    
$mysqHost "xxx";
    
$mysqlUsr "xxx";
    
$mysqlPass "xxx";
    
    
    
$conn mysql_connect($mysqHost,$mysqlUsr,$mysqlPass);
    
    
mysql_select_db("xxx") ;

    
$sql = ("SELECT * FROM `$type`;");
    
$result =  mysql_query($sql);
    
$doc = new DomDocument('1.0');
    
$type $str str_replace(' ','',$type);

    
$root $doc->createElement($type.'List');
        
$root $doc->appendChild($root);  
    while(
$row mysql_fetch_assoc($result))
    {
        
       
$company$doc->createElement($type);
       
$company $root->appendChild($company);    
       foreach(
$row as $fieldname => $fieldvalue)
       {
            if(
$fieldname !='id')
            {
            
$child $doc->createElement($fieldname);
            
$child $company->appendChild($child);
            
//add data to the new element
            
$value $doc->createTextNode($fieldvalue);
            
$value $child->appendChild($value);
            }
            
//    $car->appendChild($doc->createElement($fieldname, $fieldvalue));  more efficient way of above
            
        
}
    }
    
$str $doc->saveXML();

    print 
$str;
}


$type $_REQUEST['type'];
        
getdata($type);    

if(
$conn){ mysql_close($conn); }
?>
I've tried to decode $fieldValue using html_entity_decode, but it doesn't work. I really don't know how to fix this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
