Thanks Jason. From what you're saying, it sounds like JDOM will never
return a 0x0 as part of a string from Element.getAttribute() or
Element.getText(), in which case I must have added that value somewhere in
my code, so I'll have to look for that.
I see that I can use the verifier class, which I had not noticed before
(d'oh!), to check the validity of strings. Am I right to assume that both
attributes and content may have the same data? In other words, if a string
is valid content is it also valid attribute value, nd vise versa?
thanks for your help!
