Summary: Expat fails to correctly parse content data

Initial Comment:
In the following XML file:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<document>
	<test1 name="if (x<y)" >
	if (x < y)
	</test1>
</document>

the < in the attribute is correctly returned as "<",
however, in the character block, it appears to be 
returned as a NULL.



I will try to look into it to see if I can figure out
where expat went wrong.


Here is the output from my simple test app using expat:

defaultHandler: &#039;<?xml version="1.0" ?&#039;
defaultHandler: &#039;&#039;
startElement &#039;document&#039;
.characterData: &#039;&#039;
.characterData: &#039;&#039;
.startElement &#039;test1&#039;
.Attribute: &#039;name&#039; = &#039;if (x<y)&#039;
..characterData: &#039;&#039;
..characterData: &#039;      if (x&#039;
..characterData: &#039;&#039;
..characterData: &#039; y&#039;
..characterData: &#039;&#039;
..characterData: &#039;&#039;
.endElement &#039;test1&#039;
.characterData: &#039;&#039;
endElement &#039;document&#039;


Thanks,
Nicholas

It is the characterData handler that is not properly
processing the 'less than' sequence. 

If you notice, the 'less than' sequence was properly handled
in the element handler.

One thing that comes to mind:

There are two ways of setting a default handler.
One of them suppresses reporting of internal entitities.

Please check the docs and compare with your code.

Make that a &lt; where the < is.  
I didn't realize sourceforce would parse the comments,
instead of including them as plain text.

I am a sourceforce NOOB, so I cant figure out how to attach
files.

The < in the above example should be <

The way your document appears here is not well-formed, but
maybe the HTML processing expanded some entities.
Please attach the document as a file.
