ulink error

Post by Charlie Williams » Thu Oct 25, 2007 12:46 am

Hello,
I'm creating a test xml workflow from existing help system that contains a Help Feedback System. Everything works just fine in the old docs; however, when I insert the URL in the .xml doc, the first link returns an error. The second link does not.

The first ulink...
<para>Yes, this topic helped me. To let us know, <ulink type="http"
url="http://sagemasterbuilder.com/customer_c ... ordXMLtest"
>click here</ulink>.</para>
returns this error.
Description: The reference to entity "status" must end with the ';' delimiter.

The second link, which follows the first directly, does not get tagged with an error message.
<para>If not, or to submit a comment about this topic, <ulink type="http"
url="http://sagemasterbuilder.com/customer_c ... ordXMLtest"
>click here</ulink>.</para>

The only difference between them is that one returns a "Yes" response and the other returns a "No" response to the Help Feedback System collection database. I have tried inserting a ';' (semi-colon) at several places along the link, but nothing seems to work. I have tried copying the second link over the first link, but the first link always returns the error.

Does anyone have any ideas about why this is happening and/or how it can be fixed?
Thanks,
Charlie

Hello,

In XML files the & character starts an entity reference and must be followed by the entity name and the ; character which ends the entity. This is what the error message says. You have to replace the & character with the entity that represents that character (&), that is:

Code: Select all

The errors for the second ulink element are marked after the errors of the first ulink element are fixed.
