Invalid Characters in Condition Names

In this COBOL system, if you use mark-up characters as values for condition names, this can produce invalid XML when exporting code using XML Extensions.

Mark-up characters, such as "<", ">" or "&" used in the values for condition names will produce invalid model files when using XML Extensions. The model files will cause parse errors when loaded by XML Extensions using the XML parser; XML Extensions will report the parse error and be unable to perform the requested export or import.

88 cond-name VALUE "<br/>".


In this COBOL system, you must modify the COBOL source code, to eliminate mark-up characters in condition-name values.
