The app I am working on uses web services, and some calls pass an XML string as a parameter. When I call the ws from debug or release mode, things are OK, but when I use the profiler, the opening angle bracket gets converted to the HTML character entity >. The web service is unable to process the mangled parameter.
var xml:XML = <Test/>; xml.@ID = ID; xml.@Name = name;
// the Alert looks OK in both profiler and debug mx.controls.Alert.show(xml.toXMLString());
// but the service is seeing something like ">Test ID='xxx' Name='xxx'/>"
// rather than what it gets from the non-profiled app: "<Test ID='xxx' Name='xxx'/>" _service.DoTheThing(xml.toXMLString());
