#418 '<' char in argument string?


This may be a problem with the parser, or it may be me
trying to go further than XML Standards?

im trying to store keyboard mapping data in arguments.

Here is some sample XML code using test data:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<desc lang="En" />
<sort type="non" />
<map src="b" dest="2" />
<map src="<" dest="6" /> # problem here
<map src="bc" dest="$1" />
<map src="e" dest="3" />
<map src="abd" dest="*" />
<map src="ad" dest="@" />
<map src="abd" dest="*" />
<map src="ad" dest="@" />

In this line the parser takes the '<' char to be the
start of the next tag, all further tags are mis aligned
and my handler ignores them as invalid data format.

<map src="<" dest="6" />

this may be how the program is ment to operate? If it
is, are there any other ways i can store a string
containing '<' characters. I need to be able to use all
asci(possibly some non asci) char's to store font
conversion mappings.

Im working on a sourceforge project and would be
greatfull of some feadback.

thanks for youre help

    The parser expects src="&lt;" This will be converted back
    to '<' by the parser in the output.

    Not a bug, just an error in the document. Closing this issue.
