Hi,

The xml document is used to create a menu on my site. Everything works but when i use the characters Æ,Ø or Å (danish language) i recieve an error ...object reference not set..
I would like the word "Østed" to appear in the menu. for that I tried to use "amp" like " Label="Øamp;sted"
with
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?> or <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
but that didn't help.

I hope you can help me

Regards
A new beginner in XML who can make a menu without special charachters :-)

Hello, Bemiu---

Not only must you declare the encoding in the XML file, you must also save it in that encoding.  If you have Windows XP, use Notepad to edit your XML file for the proper Danish, and with the UTF-8 encoding declaration.  Then use File|Save As, and specify "Encoding" to be UTF-8.  Then try running your application again.

Hey Pam

Thanks for the work arround !  Both files are the same so i could not understand why i recieved that error meassage. After i compiled your work arround in my application it works fine..and after i compiled my xml file it also works fine !?!? Maybe it should have a kick somewhere in the application.
