& character messing up with the webservice's xml response
posted 7 years ago
I'm returning an OMElement on the webservice method that's called, but the problem is when it has the & ampersand char I cannot get the whole xml, seems that it stops sending the xml from that point on and just go straight to the closing tags.
Does anyone have any idea how to solve this? because sometimes I may return some other weird characters such as japanese, chinese or things like that so I just want to make sure those characters won't mess my xml up.
It's not that the ampersand is a "weird" character (as you so rudely describe Japanese and Chinese), it's just that your XML document is not well-formed. You have to escape that character if you use it in a text node:
