in reply to Accessing mixed content in XML

I gather this isn't what you want to hear, but you'll have to escape that HTML to get it into XML. For example:

<argument>&lt;img src="test.jpg"&gt;</argument>

If you don't then you don't have valid XML and no XML parser I've ever seen is going to parse the file successfully.

    Sam,

    I'm quite happy to hear that suggestion as it's easily implemented and works perfectly for what I want to do.

    Thanks for your help. Very much appreciated.

      Sure, that works fine for the tiny example shown, but it won't work in the arbitrary case. HTML cannot be trivially transformed into XML in many cases.
