Description Mark Broadhurst 2002-02-12 12:12:30 UTC
I process XML files that contain encoded character codes such as é

However, when using the valueOf tag, the code calls the encode method which 
looks for &'s and converts them to &.  The problem is the method ignores 
the fact the the & is already part of a code and evaluates it to & anyway.  
This means the returned text for the tag is é which obviously 
displays incorrectly in the browser window.

Regards, Mark.

Resolving. Taglib has been retired.
