BioHazard has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi Monks!

I am using XML::Simple on my Windows machine and it works quite well. There is just one thing I do not understand: XML::Simple does not seem to cope with , and . I need these characters in german language - HTML(!)-Output. I have taken a closer look to the and have searched for an escape method for ", & etc. I have found it but only for XMLout(). I could change at least that method to deal with , and for XML-Output but the more important thing is this XMLin()-Thing. It does read an from the XML-File for example but not & auml ; <- But that is exactly what I need for the HTML-Output. Is there a way to escape these values without making changes in the whole hash-reference tree produced by XMLin()?

Thank you for your help

P.S.: I have to apologize for my english...
