Hi

I am using kXml for parsing a well formed html page and I am having a problem since this parser expands entity references in attributes values.
Since the page that I am parsing is an HTML page it contains something on these lines

...href="http://foobar.com/FooToos.aspx?ito=4912&itc=0"...

As you can see the parser reads the attribute values &itc=0 and thinks that it is a begingning of an entity and then falls over since it doesnt get an ending ; it complains that it could not resolve &itc

But as you can see that is not an entity ref rather it is paramters passed to the page FooToos.aspx.

So comming back to my questions.

Has anyone going around and modified kXml source code so that it doesnt be too smart and starts expanding all the entity references it encounters in attribute values.
