( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I'm parsing an XML document that has an acute accent acting as a right quote. It's char(180) (aka U+00B4) and the document encoding is UTF-8. When I run XML::Parser over it (or even the xml_pp tool), I get a "not well-formed (invalid token)" error.

I've naively tried adding use utf8; to the script, but I still get the error. I believe I could just tr/// that bad boy into something less problematic, but I was wondering if there was a lazier way, like a setting in XML::Parser that I can add to the handlers?

For the curious, I'm getting my output from LaTeXML, a set perl tools for converting LaTeX to XML. There might be some scope to process the output before I parse the XML, but I suspect that it'll look a.


perl -e 'print qq(Just another Perl Hacker\n)' # where's the irony switch?

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.
