Question:

I want to use the DW Import and fill in the index entries using a .dwcontrol metadata. But why are special characters not processed correctly?


Solution:

Special characters have to be formatted in valid XML format. The correct format of the special character can be created with this tool for example:

It is possible that characters are recognized correctly without formatting them, but that does not mean, that this will work every time. It is recommended to format every character in valid XML.
