I apologize for not explaining my question .
I am using "Xerces" C++ library for converting a ASCI data base into a XML
data file. The data base contain many odd characters.
When I call the function createElement of DOM_Document class with a "$" sign
for example, I catch a DOM_DOMException with
a value of INVALID_CHARACTER_ERR.
Can any one tell me why doesn't it comply with standard XML. How can this
