Hi All,

My doubt is, can we use '/' inside the text part of an XML node like "2/23/1988". I need to send an XML to the server. That XML contains a "DOB" node and text part of the node is date string like "2/23/1988". Can we use the above format. Is there any problem....?
<DOB>2-23-1988</DOB>

Yes, you can use pretty much everything as inner text of the xml tag. unless you you are not having something "</" in your text. you need not escape '/' it in your xml code. For confirmation you may try that out in any xml editor which follows W3C specifications
