in reply to XML::Parser and numeric entities

It simply decodes the entities. It doesn't then encode the character using UTF-8.

If you want all non-ASCII characters encoded, you can use:

use HTML::Entities qw( encode_entities_numeric ); sub handle_char { my $self = shift; my $x = shift; print encode_entities_numeric($x); }

There's also a handler you can use instead of Char that receives the entities still encoded, but then you're not guaranteed to have all non-ASCII characters encoded.

    Thank you for that information, I can use it to patch up my problem

    However what I really want is for XML::Parser to NOT decode the numeric entities at all.
