We have some data that is being exposed via a JSON web service that is being consumed in a custom XUI app. The content provided in the JSON data already has a variety of entity references in it (ex: &). When we pass this data to the createTextNode(...) method of the Document class, it translates the "&" character in the & entity to a "&", resulting in the value & being stored in the SGML document. Clearly, we could modify the JSON service to no longer output entity references, but is there another way to skin this cat? Is there a way to cause the createTextNode(...) Document class method not translate characters to entities as described above?
Alternative suggestions are welcome.
Chris, this worked like a charm! Thank you!
