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

From Chris Miller chris.miller at kbcfp.com on Thu Oct 22 13:34:56 BST 2009

Note that the use of the word "may" means escaping it is optional. The bit 
that discusses "must" is only referring to its use within the substring "]]>" 
within a CDATA section (which makes perfect sense). So, sounds like the splitter 
behaviour is indeed within spec.

IK> The right angle bracket (>) may be represented using the string "
IK> > ",and MUST, for compatibility, be escaped using either " > "
IK> or a character reference when it appears in the string " ]]> " in
IK> content, when that string is not marking the end of a CDATA section.
