Hello Expert [Gertone],

I have an input xml which contains content as below....

<p class="- topic/p ">To set the value of this property using MXML:
   <pre xml:space="preserve" class="- topic/pre ">
    &lt;mx:PlotSeries ... &gt;
     &lt;mx:fills&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0xCC66FF"/&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0x9966CC"/&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0x9999CC"/&gt;
     &lt;/mx:fills&gt;
    &lt;/mx:PlotSeries&gt;
   </pre>
  </p>

and in output it appearing as ....

<p>To set the value of this property using MXML:
   <pre>
    <mx:PlotSeries ... >
     <mx:fills>
      <mx:SolidColor color="0xCC66FF"/>
      <mx:SolidColor color="0x9966CC"/>
      <mx:SolidColor color="0x9999CC"/>
     </mx:fills>
    </mx:PlotSeries>
   </pre>
  </p>

where as it should appear as

    &lt;mx:PlotSeries ... &gt;
     &lt;mx:fills&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0xCC66FF"/&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0x9966CC"/&gt;
      &lt;mx:SolidColor color="0x9999CC"/&gt;
     &lt;/mx:fills&gt;
    &lt;/mx:PlotSeries&gt;

Here the &lt; and &gt; is converting to '<' and '>'

How will i achieve this using xsl2.0?

Thanks,
Shailesh

Hey,
this template does exactly what you want it to do...
are you looking at the result in a browser?
In a browser of course, a &lt; is shown as a <

Hello Expert,

In browser it does appearring, but when i look at the source it's appears as '<'.
It should appear as '&lt;' in source, so it will appear in browser '<'

Thanks,
Shailesh
