[OAI-implementers] pointies in abstracts
Mon, 2 Jul 2001 11:34:57 +0100
A quick question:
What's the best way to handle "pointies" (greater-than and
less-than) inside record elements? If an abstract happens to contain a
phrase like "we studied the mating behaviour of horses at < 5 degrees
Kelvin", this can obviously stop the XML being well-formed.
Currently we are encoding *all* character entities (including
ampersand, degrees sign etc.) as HTML entities. Is this right?
Sorry if this has been discussed already.
