XML output as text problem
I am trying to get a plain ASCII text output file from my database, for use with an older device that does not like any formatting characters, etc. I have tried a number of export field or record formats--none produce the clean, plain text output I need.
I've resorted to exporting as XML and writing a simple XSLT stylesheet which specifies text output with: <xsl:output method="text"/>. That works fine...
...except that there is an annoying character (or characters) that shows up in TextEdit (on my mac) as a "0" (number zero). No matter how I change the stylesheet (I'm a neophyte to XLST), no matter the field I specify for export--I get this extraneous leading character.
Any help greatly appreciated.
