linking URLs


if I want to insert a URL (including special characters) in my xml sheet that links to an external website, is it recommended to put the entire link (or maybe just the special characters) in CDATA ?

Hope someone can help. Thanks!

Hi Veronika,

CDATA is recommended for all text-based text-nodes that can contain any characters. So yes, I recommend putting URLs in CDATA sections to avoid invalid XML files due to non-escaped special characters.



Hi Martin,


thanks for your assistance in both cases!! Hope we can work our project without problems now:)

Kind regards
