in reply to replace string

Could you attach a sample of your source file, the regexes you have in place should work as expected, provided the characters in the file are as you expect.

    How to convert XHTML entity characters to XML form
      No need, XHTML is XML
        The input is
        <b></b>Officially called <>“events,”< +/a> as "never events"
        the string should be converted to
        <b></b>Officially called <>“events,”< +/a>as "never events"
        How can I convert only such characters.

        In case anybody visits this node again, I have a guess what sandy1028 is talking about. HTML (and XHTML) define a set of named character entities such as  . Generic XML parsers will not recognize these entities because they are application specific. So he or she needs, for whatever reason, to translate XHTML-specific named character entities to their corresponding numeric character entities for use in some non-HTML XML application.

        A few years ago I had to do this myself when reformatting some good old-fashioned HTML into something that could be used in an XSLT stylesheet. Man was that a pain.
