I am using Text to create a text node in DOM

String myString = "\"<c:out value="${status.errorCode}" >"\"
Text txt = document.createTextNode(mystring)

as you can see mystring has " , < , > which are all special chars. When I run my pgm the xml has &lt , &gt etc..
I want to dispaly this string in my XML is it possible to diplay it.

How do you display your XML? Do you use external XML viewer - I guess - no - because otherwise the viewer would show &lt; &gt; &#....; correctly.

Escaping the chars did not work,

I did the following, converted the result XML to String and replcae the &lt; with < using
replaceAll("&lt;" "<"); and then wrote to file.

Thanks for ur help

OutputFormat formatterLocal = new OutputFormat(document , "ISO-8859-1" , true);
String[] nonEscapingElements = {"script", "option"};
formatterLocal.setNonEscapingElements(nonEscapingElements);
