Special Characters in XML
I'm currently doing an xml based website, and I have some questions regarding this.
I have a problem that the xml file can't accept special characters. It shows error, something like the following:
A name contained an invalid character. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/Documents and Settings/student/Desktop/Java/book10.xml'. Line 254, Position 22
I had this error when i opened the file on Internet Browser. It seems that the xml file doesnt accept special characters like '@'. may i know what's the mistake that i've made? or is there any solutions to this problems?thanks in advance.
The problem is that the parser thinks that firstname.lastname@example.org is an element name and amphorae are illegal characters in element names. Instead of <email@example.com> try &lt;firstname.lastname@example.org&gt;.

Apologies for thread necromancy, but I have a question pertaining to this topic. On my site I send my pages as application/xml+xhtml, and in the footer I use the copyright character (©). While this is no problem in Firefox, it appears Thunderbird has a problem with it. I cannot enclose the copyright character in CDATA, because then the HTML entity is shown, but it's obviously not going to work as a special character. Please advise.
Thanks for your time.
I haven't tried it msyelf yet, but I asked someone to look at it for me in Thunderbird (I uninstalled it, it bothered me) and they said it 'twas fine. Thanks.

You can use "&" instead of @ symbol.
Special Character for em-dash
I have been using — — ; for an em-dash and the xml embedded to Flash gives a
small box (PC) or a small head-image (MAC). Does anyone have a solution to define this character or an answer besides just putting two dashes?
NEED HELP ASAP!! THanks!
Try the following code in your style sheet and see if this works for you.
Note : In the xsl:Output-character, assign the character as character="<ampersand symbol><hash Symbol>8212;"
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="2.0">
<xsl:output-character character="—" string="--"/>
