Description Murray McAllister 2008-02-12 02:48:54 EST
Description of problem:
I need to use a "&" character in a configuration file (not &). I can't get
this to parse correctly. I have tried:

* <screen><![CDATA[
* <programlisting>
* <literal>
* &amp;amp;

I would have thought the later worked. I got around this using "&amp;amp&semi;".
Not sure if this is correct...

We do not support CDATA.

If you want to display xml content in your output, you need to:

mkdir en-US/extras
vi en-US/extras/foo.txt
<put your xml in foo.txt>

xi:include the txt file in to you xml file, in this case inside the screen tag:

<xi:include parse="text" href="extras/foo.txt"
xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude" />

Cheers, Jeff.
