Hi,

I seem to get these error messages frequently when working with xml and displaying xml data dynamically..

Error 1: Whitespace required before attributes.

Error 2: End of entity not allowed; an end tag is missing

Can someone please explain or let me know if they have experience this?

Its frustrating, because it works sometimes, and not others...


Thanks

The first error is exactly what it says it is: missing whitespace. Run this code and you'll get the error:

<cfxml variable="test">
<categoryid="1"></category>
</cfxml>

Of course the error can be corrected using: <category id="1">

The second error is easy as well: missing endtag. Here's how you reproduce it:

<cfxml variable="test">
<category id="1">
</cfxml>

Just make sure you write valid XML.

HTH,
