Hi,
 
I'm trying to place a link in my overview.edoc that contains the '&'
character
the overview.edoc contains something like <a
href="http://mysite.com/url?docno=&objectId=09004cff82bf1356&action=curr
ent&format=pdf
<http://mysite.com/url?docno=&objectId=09004cff82bf1356&action=current&f
ormat=pdf> ">Link</a>
 
 
$ gmake doc
    overview.edoc: at line 8: error in XML parser: {fatal,
                             {error_scanning_entity_ref,
                                 {file,file_name_unknown},
                                 {line,11},
                                 {col,109}}}.
    edoc: error in doclet 'edoc_doclet': {'EXIT',error}.
 
 
I tried to replace the '&' with the xml code \& 
<a
href=http://mysite.com/url?docno=\&objectId=09004cff82bf1356\&ac
tion=current\&format=pdf
<http://mysite.com/url?docno=\&objectId=09004cff82bf1356\&action
=current\&format=pdf> >Link</a>
 
 
The edoc then succeeds but the link is unusable :(
It appears in the html like
http://mysite.com/url?docno=\&objectId=09004cff82bf1356\&action=
current\&format=pdf
<http://mysite.com/url?docno=\&objectId=09004cff82bf1356\&action
=current\&format=pdf> 
 
 
Any clues for this problem?

 

 

Thanks,

Ali Yakout
