XMLTextReader does not convert reference characters

Hi

I read an XML file with an XMLTextReader and in the CDATA section there are
reference characters ( characters in the form &-#-x-0. There are no dashes
of course I just placed them so that they will not be converted to a single
char by your browser )

The reader returns the encoded string instead of the character
what am I doing wrong?

thanks

I am feeding XmlTextReader a URL that returns the XML that then gets parsed. The URL forms a query that affects how much data is returned in XML but not the format of the data. The problem is that when the URL string exceeds about 163 characters (strange number) XmlTextReader seems to choke on it and it doesn't seem like any XML is actually being returned and the code throws an exception on reading the first element. Shorter URL strings...

I read on Microsoft's website about writing surrogate pairs, but I can't find any documentation that confirms the

Hi there, I need to parse a lot of html-files from wikipedia, and I need to do it as fast as possible. So I started a little testing with XMLTextReader, but the results I get confuse me. It seems that the Reader ALWAYS needs about 1 second for the first textReader.Read() Here's my testcode: XmlTextReader _myReader = new XmlTextReader(textBox1.Text);

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...

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.
