If the so-called XML contains &nbsp; entity references and doesn't contain a
definition of the nbsp entity, then it's not well-formed XML, in fact it's
not XML at all, and no XML parser is going to ignore this error. You need to
fix the code that generates the XML.

Or have I misunderstood the problem?

# Subject: [xsl] ignoring &nbsp; when transforming xml to wml
# I am doing a project which requires HTML to be converted to WML, the HTML
# has been converted to XML and now I am trying to write a stylesheet that
# will transform the XML into WML. However I am having a problem with the
# &nbsp; Is there an easy way to get the stylesheet to ignore these?
# Because
# when they are left in there is no output from the transformation but if I
# just delete the &nbsp; from the XML file then the transformation goes
# ahead
# properly.
# I have tried using <xsl:text
# disable-output-escaping="yes">&amp;&nbsp;</xsl:text> but this does not
# seem
# to solve my problem and apparently its bad form to use it anyway.
# Please can anyone help?
# (I have tried looking through the archive but there is SO much I cant find
# what Im looking for!)
# Thanks, Gillian Shields.
