    XML tag for "nothing" (CS6)

    HansSH04

      Hi!

       

      My application fills an Indesign document with the contents of a database. While doing this, an XML tag is assigned to every field to allow identification and updating. The whole thing works quite nicely, but now a problem has come up, if a database field is empty. This means, no text as well as no XML tag.

       

      Long story short, I need a way to either assign an XML tag to an empty text (if at all possible) or I need to assign it to some character, which is neither visible nor takes up any space - or any other solution which allows me to assign add an XML tag to my document structure.

       

      Any help is appreciated!

       

      Thanks,

      Hans
