RE: [xml] (no subject)

Hi Hannu,

I did look for the information as well and did find it in 1 min:

probably before casting one type to the other like is done in this code

if (titolo != NULL) {
    char* tit = ap_pstrdup(r->pool, (char*) xmlEncodeEntitiesReentrant(doc,
(xmlChar*) titolo));
    xmlNewChild(node, NULL, (xmlChar*) "Title", (xmlChar*) tit);

it won't be too much to look its definition up, is it? (the 2nd resource is
derived from the source code)

but probably you are right, that this should surely be in the faqs! I
attached a patch, but maybe it should say more?

Hi Daniel,

Perhaps the "welcome" message to the mailing list should 
contain the UTF-8 

  Honnestly, I don't know how to get people to behave in a less
egoist fashion. Everybody wants its question answered now and
without having the hassles of looking for the answers or reading
what's available. I'm afraid of having valuable contributors be
burnt out by this, I'm afraid of getting burnt out myself. Should
I hide the address of the list (or make it available only at the
end of a search query answer) ?
  I honnestly don't know what to do.

Perhaps adding everything that is asked more than once to FAQ 
would help

Q: I have an XML document and I add some nodes with text in iso-8859-1
encoding, but I get en error when trying to save this document using
iso-8859-1 encoding.

A: All internal text is kept in utf-8 encoding, sou you have 
to convert
your text to utf-8 befor adding it to DOM tree. It will be then
converted to whatever format you want when you save it.

The two mail received today were both complete FAQ,

I just checked, and the FAQ at did _not_ have 
an answer
for the iso-8859-1 question - a search for "UTF" gave nothing 
and search
for "encoding" gave irrelevant answer (about iconv support).

It was quite quite hard to find out the answer even after going to
"Encoding support" doc.

covered in the recent weeks, the XPath
question is actually simply due to the fact that people don't even
try to understand the XPath specification because libxml2 behaviour
directly derives from the spec normative text.

  That's simply depressing :-(

Spec's normative texts are usually not an easy read ;(

One will only _really_ understand them when one has to implement them,
for all other purposes just trying and guessing and asking around is
usually the faster way.

(just another thing to get depressed about ;)
