in thread Funny characters in nodes

Most of the characters that caused problems that I looked at can be safely ignored. They are not just linefeeds, however. What I'm afraid of is that they may be some multi-byte characters that make sense in another characters set (especially since perlmonks.org uses Latin1 and not UTF-8).

    Then do option 2 or 3. Option 2 is pretty simple:

    s/(\\)|([...])/ $1 ? "\\\\" : sprintf "\\%02X", chr $2 /ge; my @elements= parseXML(); s/\\(\\|..)/ length $1 == 1 ? "\\" : chr hex $2 /ge for @elements;
