( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
No, I haven't but based on your suggestion and on others comments (thanks to all), I will now do that. Incidentally, to answer questions from others, some of the data in the file is coming from a mySQL database and having checked some of the fields are in UTF and some are latin1 so maybe that is the problem (although I believe you are right - my service provider should give more feedback and I am going to badger them to do this). Other values are just coming from the script itself. I read that PERL internally uses UTF-8 format. So doesn't that mean that all data values unless sourced direct from the database are UTF-8 and therefore my latin1 encoded XML should never have worked? Or is it just that I was probably lucky as latin1 is 'almost' a subset of UTF-8?

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
