Using encode_entities makes this sort of thing happen:

XML Parsing Error: undefined entity Location: http://XXX.YYY.ZZZ/

and points to the relevant entity.

I think using encode_entities_numeric would help a lot with this. This is just a naïve assessment, but this would prevent xml-like pages being non-xml.


I suppose you mean a html generator, and not a html parser.

ikiwiki uses numeric entities where required, but not otherwise.

It seems valid for xhtml to have eg, < in it. Do you have a specific example? --Joey
