Hi!
I can't seem to parse an XML file with an empty tag. I have the sample xml file:

<Notes>
<score>
   <result>90/100</result>
   <Math subject = "calculus" />
</score>
</Notes>

I wanted to parse it like this:
Name   : result
Value   : 90/100  
Attribute: ""

Name   : Math
Value   : ""
Attribute: calculus


I have parsed the result tag but I can't seem to parse the empty tag with EXPAT. Can anybody please help me?

I guess your CharacterDataHandler doesn't work in second case.
Solution will be simple: CharacterDataHandler only appends data to internal buffer; StartElementHandler initialize that buffer to empty string, stores name and attribute; EndElementHandler displays everything: "Name", "Value" (from string buffer) and "Attribute"
