.NET gotchas

Discussion in 'XML' started by Steve Slatcher, Mar 3, 2004.

  1. I feel pretty comfortable with XML, though it is some time since I have
    worked with it, but recently I have had cause to look at how the .NET
    Framework classes deal with XML. It did not take me long to establish that
    actually the XmlTextReader is not an "XML Processor" (please correct me if I
    am wrong) because it does not expand entities. And neither does it
    normalise attributes by default, which seems to explain why trailing spaces
    in web.config files, e.g., are treated as significant!

    And these issues are way before you start considering some of the finer
    points of validation against DTDs and XML Schemas. I find this a bit
    worrying, and I am sure I am not the first. So my question is: does anyone
    know of a guide to XML and .NET that will highlight the various issues with
    interoperability?

    Failing that, please feel free to list them here :)

    Cheers
