xmltextreader invalid characters and using RegEx to bypass this

I read some advice given to someone here to use RegEx to get around invalid
XML characters. Goran Djuranovic asked the question in 1-21-2007. The
advice was given by Keith Patrick and Goran replied saying it was working
fine. I'm a beginner in object oriented languages.

I'm interested in getting more information on how to use the RegEx for this
purpose.

I'm getting an exception error on the read using xmltextreader when the
".value" is text containing characters such as " (meaning inches), ' (meaning
feet), 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and degrees symbol. All these characters are contained
in double quoted text which is used when describing a legal description of a
parcel of land.

Would anyone's suggestion be to pre-read each character of the xml to
replace these characters with the escape sequence that does not cause the
exception on the xmltextreader .read? Is that what the RegEx would do for
me?

Would you have any sample .net v1.1 you'd be willing to share on how you'd
do this?

Thank you
JW

Those characters are: /, \, :, *, ?, ", <, >, | I have it right now with string.replace for each individual character, but would like to do it all in one step if possible. Here's what I have now: title = title.Replace("?", ""); title = title.Replace(":", "");

Hi all, I ran into a problem where my XMLTextReader fails on .Read() when I have "<" character in one of the attribute's values. What I am trying to do is replace illegal characters ("<", "&" , etc.) with legal stuff ("&lt;", "&amp;", etc.), before I send the XML text to a SQL Server stored procedure. Currently, I am using XMLTextReader and StringWriter to do this, here is the piece of code that fails:...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
