XML find == operator?

Hi,

 

I am using XML web publishing and I need to have the find operation match the input exactly (filemaker client: ==).

 

In XML I seem to just have 'eq' (filemaker client: =) as an option.

 

The issue I'm having with the 'eq' operator is that it will match incorrectly when I have special characters in the field.

 

Is there any way for me to do an exact match with the XML url?

Thanks,

-Jeremy

 

Field Value: Str!ng

 

XML find with eq operator:

Operator: eq

Value: Str (match - bad)

Value: Str!n (match - bad)

Value: Str!ng (match - good)

Value: St (no match - good)

 

Filemaker Client:

Operator: =

Value: Str (match - bad)

Value: Str!n (match - bad)

Value: Str!ng (match - good)

Value: St (no match - good)

Operator: ==

Value: Str (no match - good)

Value: Str!n (no match - good)

Value: Str!ng (match - good)

Value: St (no match - good)
