Hi,
I'm trying to read/write a simple HTML file using "javax.xml.parsers". I get all details(nodes and attributes) when i read that file as an XML document. After modifying some tag values, I write the changes to the same file using "javax.xml.transform". But, in between <head> ... </head> tags, "<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">" is getting added which fails the parser in my next attempt.

kindly tell me how can I avoid generation of this <META> tag . . .

Thank you in advance . . . .

But that's well-formed HTML. So if some parser is failing to parse it, then it's the fault of that parser. (Or were you trying to parse the HTML with an XML parser?)
 
No thanks. We have all the government we need. This tiny ad would like you to leave now:
