  • 3. Selecting Node text with a blackslash
    I have a Node: <id>V1394\1TRY4</id> When I attempt to select the Node based on it's text it fails: Set Node = xml.selectSingleNode("/id[. = 'V1394\1TRY4']") If I remove the backslash, \, from the equation it works: <id>V13941TRY4</id> Set Node = xml.selectSingleNode("/id[. = 'V13941TRY4']") Is there a way to select a Node whose text contains a backslash? Thanks! JW

I am an Access Programmer who will be learning XML in the
near future.

I understand XML can make PivotTables very similar to 

Looking for recommendations on a good book to start the
XML learning process.  After that, this Newsgroup should
be an excellent way to continue learning.

TIA - Bob

The following three books were and still are books I rely heavily on.  I
found that they are able to answer all of my questions in a well thought out
manner usually with good examples to boot:

XML Bible (Hungry Minds)
Professional XML Databases (Wrox Press)
XSLT Programmers Reference (Wrox Press)

3.WordML images - totally list


To store an image in a WordML document, the .chm file says you use <pict> 
and it has a <binData> subnode. It has several other subnodes listed but they 
are all irrelevant for a bitmap image.

WordProcessingML.doc and any xml file saved by Word both show a 
<v:shapetype> and <v:shape> subnode. But neither explains any of the 
attributes or subnodes of those two nodes.

The vml schema lists all of the attributes and sub-nodes, but has no 
description with any of them.

To store a bitmap in a WordML file - what attributes and sub-nodes need to 
be set and with what values? If I just guess on this based on saving a bunch 
of files, there are so many undocumented elements here I'm gauranteed to 
guess wrong on some.

thanks - dave
