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.

[Corion]: Yay, vacation time now - one week off work (but a Perl workshop in the middle ;)) )
[talexb]: TStanley I just realized that I was in your area for a convention back in April. We were at the high school for the weekend, the one with the long driveway. Nice spot.
[TStanley]: I am heading to Arlington, Virginia next week, then I get to spend an entire week at home. Looking forward to that as I will have spent 7 weeks on the road by the end of next week
[talexb]: That's a long road trip. I haven't travelled for business in years.
