This means that almost surely your "non-ascii" was not encoded in UTF-8. Encode them this way and it will work. >My second attempt was to write a function which replaced all the non- >ASCII characters with entities such as Ā > >Unfortunately his also doesn't work because tal:attributes escapes it >into &#256 which then fails. I have extended our local Zope version to support (beside "text" and "structure") also "mtext" (for markup text). It does not escape entity references but still escapes other markup. >Finally, I tried tal:attributes with my function and the structure >keyword but 'structure' isn't supported with tal:attributes. I have extended our local Zope to support "structure" for attributes as well. I could provide patches, if useful. > ... >Any ideas would be appreciated. The correct (recommended) way it to encode your non-ascii in the encoding you claim to be using. Then the "expat" error will go away. -- Dieter _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
