    Validating xmls in flex

    flex2008 Level 3

      I have a requirement in which i need to make sure that an xml has a valid structure.
      This is the code snippet that i am using right now

       

      try
      {
          new XML(xmlString);//xmlstring is the xml to be validated in string format.
      }
      catch(error:Error)
      {
          Alert.show("Invalid xml")
      }

       

      This logic works for cases in which tags are mismatched and all.But fails in cases like <######/> and other similar cases where special characters come inside the tag.

       

      Anyone knows how to take into account these cases?
