[mkgmap-dev] Splitter: Possible bug: not escaping '>' with '> '

Hi Ivan,

Yep that sounds like a bug all right. I haven't looked at the code yet but 
it's interesting that < is OK but > isn't... Thanks for the report, 
I've put it on my todo list.


IK> Hi,
IK> Possible bug in the splitter, the '>' character is not escaped in
IK> output, i.e.:
IK> <way id='30408924'>
IK> Original tag:
IK> <tag k="name" v="Zakynthos &lt;&gt; Kyllini"/>
IK> Splitter output:
IK> <tag k='name' v='Zakynthos &lt;> Kyllini'/>
IK> This does not break mkgmap, but breaks my poorly written parser...
IK> And is not according to XML specs, i.e. should be escaped with
IK> '&gt;'
IK> Thanks,
IK> Ivan
