and have a few questions...
First, the update. Unlike normal software aging, I cut the code size by 50%
(below 5k w/o my comments) and increased the speed and compatibility. It
and according to spec for a well-formed parser understands elements,
attributes, the prolog, comments, processing instructions, and CDATA
sections. What I am working on yet is entities and DOM compatibility(just
have to print out the spec and read it).
My question is this, being a fairly simple parser, how should I handle
entities? I'm confused by the spec as to how a well-formed parser should
handle them. Should I parse <!ENTITY definitions in an included DTD, or
simply handle & < > " ' ? If those are all I should
handle, which ones where? The spec does talk about these things, but I
don't feel right about my interpretation of it.
Other question: Either I can't find it or I am reading right by it, but how
do I handle whitespace in attribute values as a well-formed parser, just
allow anything, including \n?
Now, after I get these issues resolved and implemented along with DOM
working on. It's only a partial implementation, but it gets the job done
browsers(IE3/4 & NN4).
Please feel free to try out the parser, download the source and play with
breeze! It can also be _very_ useful on the server side for those servers
