Sample text

Es gibt nun mehrere Möglichkeiten, Zeichen davor zu schützen, von einem XML-Prozessor als Markup-Zeichen ausgewertet zu werden, wenn sie als Inhalt eines Elements oder innerhalb eines Attributwerts benötigt werden. 1 Eingebaute und eigene Entitäten Der eine Weg ist die Verwendung von Entitäten und Referenzen auf diese Entitäten. XML bringt fünf solcher Entitäten schon mit: Entität Entitätsreferenz Bedeutung Lt < < (kleiner als) Gt > > (größer als) amp & & (Ampersand) apos ' ' (Apostrophe oder einfache Anführung) quot " " (doppelte Anführung) Ein Firmenname wie B&B kann auf diese Weise als B&B eingegeben werden.

Deshalb wurde Unicode um einen so genannten Ersatzblock erweitert, der über eine Million Zeichen zusätzlich erlaubt. Allerdings sind diese Zeichen keine gültigen XML-Zeichen. Inzwischen werden drei unterschiedliche Unicode-Kodierungen eingesetzt, mit 8, 16 oder 32 Bit pro Zeichen. Sie werden als UTF-8, UTF-16 und UTF-32 bezeichnet, wobei UTF eine Abkürzung für Unicode (oder UCS) Transformation Format ist. Die encoding-Deklaration legt fest, welche Zeichenkodierung das Dokument verwendet, damit der XML-Prozessor diese Kodierung seinerseits ebenfalls benutzt.

Im folgenden Beispiel wird angegeben, dass das Dokument die Zeichensatzkodierung UTF-16 verwendet und dass keine externen Markupdeklarationen vorhanden sind, auf die für die Verarbeitung des Dokuments zugegriffen werden müsste, also etwa eine externe Dokumententyp-Definition oder ein XML Schema. 0"? 5 Zeichenkodierung Da es bei XML-Dokumenten um Textdaten geht, muss die Entscheidung getroffen werden, wie Zeichen in Bits und Bytes dargestellt, also kodiert werden sollen, und welche Zeichen, also welcher Zeichensatz, in einem bestimmten Dokument maßgeblich ist.
