Document contains invalid character reference


I want to insert the following XML into Tamino

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<test>?&#x7;Benefits at a glance</test>

I get the following Tamino error response:

<ino:message ino:returnvalue="8719">
  <ino:messagetext ino:code="INOXPE8719">Document contains invalid character reference</ino:messagetext> 
  <ino:messageline>Line 2, Column 13: Invalid character reference</ino:messageline> 

OK, I guess Tamino wants to convert the entity into a character but it is unknown to Tamino.

Is there any possibility to tell Tamino what to do with this entity without modifying the XML?

Thanks in advance,

This is an XML restriction, not a Tamino one. The only characters with code points less than x20 (space) allowed in an XML document are tab (x9), line feed (xA), and carriage return (xD). See section 2.2 of the XML Recommendation from the W3C.

So in other words, what you’re trying to insert into Tamino isn’t XML, and that’s why it won’t let you.
