1) XML Error: A semi colon character was expected. Error processing resource –

Error Description:

While  viewing  the xml file in a web browser, sometimes an error "A semi colon character was expected." Occurs.

Example of a  XML snippet  that throws this error:


<NODE Caption="Ext Link" Link Name="http://google.com/ccc?key=0AEeVE& hl=en" />



This occurs when using external links on the XSLT sheet which contains the character “&”.


The work around is to simply replace every instance of & in the link with &amp;


<NODE Caption="Ext Link" Link Name="http://google.com/ccc?key=0AEeVE&amp;hl=en" />
