[PHP] html entry within XML database

2002-07-13 Thread William S.

I am experimenting with using an XML file as a
database. One of the things I do is provide
a way of adding records to the database by an
html form.

This seems to work out well so far unless one
of the fields in a record contains an html
reference. The result is a Sablotron parse error.

What is the best way around this? Should I
validate the form before it is submitted so that
html references are rejected? How would I do this?

As a general rule of thumb you should ALWAYS validate the information posted
as a form before sending it on to whatever backend you are using.
