Wokring on a fairly uncomplicated XML-to-InDesign project.
When the XML character for a CR (carriage return for a new paragraph) is in the XML file, InDesign imports it correctly.
But when the XML character for a LF (line feed, a line break within a paragraph), it converts it to a CR/paragraph break.
Is InDesign capable of retaining the LF characters? Is there another character that InDesign uses instead?
FYI, the characters we're using are:
CR = & # x D ; (with spaces added here so that you can read it on this webpage)
LF = & # x A ; (also with added spaces)
Our XML file (SQLed out of a database) looks like this (with added spaces):
<FACULTY>Faculty Members: & # x A ; Joe Smith & # x A ; Mary Cline & # x A ; John Jones & # x D ;</FACULTY>
We need this as one paragraph with line breaks.
Found this forum article on the issue from a few years ago, http://forums.adobe.com/message/2022515#2022515.
Mentions using the code "
" but it converts to a carriage return, too.
Still looking for a line break code that works!
