bug#12227: 24.1.50; xml.el: xml-entity-alist is pre-ecaped!

From: Matt Price
Subject: bug#12227: 24.1.50; xml.el: xml-entity-alist is pre-ecaped!
Date: Sat, 18 Aug 2012 12:24:00 -0400
User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:15.0) Gecko/20120724 Thunderbird/15.0

"xml-entity-alist" in xml.el is used by other programs, notably
xml-rpc.el, to parse xml content and escape xml entities.
Unfortunately the current version of xml.el has two of the entities

(defvar xml-entity-alist
'(("lt" . "<")
("gt" . ">")
("apos" . "'")
("quot" . "\"")
("amp" . "&"))
"Alist mapping XML entities to their replacement text.")

this creates invalid xml output. replacing this with:
(defvar xml-entity-alist
'(("lt" . "<")
("gt" . ">")
("apos" . "'")
("quot" . "\"")
("amp" . "&"))
"Alist mapping XML entities to their replacement text.")

seems to fix the problem.

Thank you!

an =
obscure technical work-in-progress buried in the depths of a vast
research =
institute. Today, it permeates almost every aspect of our lives, including=
every stage in the production of knowledge. You have been living through =
a fundamental transformation of knowledge; and yet the modes of
on you've learned and explored at University (the essay, the article,
the s=
cholarly monograph) belong to the world that came before. There are good r=
easons for this. The standards of our discipline were formed carefully ove=
r hundreds of years, in a determined quest to uncover and communicate
s about the past to our colleagues and the wider world. Even so, historian=
s need to explore the digital media of our present and future. The books a=
nd other writings of old will not disappear, but they will be
supplemented =
by the new media of the web. In this class, we will explore those new medi=
a as tools for the transmission of historical knowledge, culminating in
an =
intensive group project in which you will build a historical website in
se collaboration with a community partner. The community partnership is a =
key element of "Hacking History", and a source of many of its pleasures
challenges. </p> <p> Along the way, we will learn about the history of d=
igital media, and their place in the development of the public sphere;
and =
we will also study the history and politics of "engaged" and "public"
arship. We will also spend a substantial amount of time acquiring the tech=
nical skills needed for a project like this, e.g., the fundamentals of
<a h=
ref=3D"http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML";>HTML</a> and <a
w.codecademy.com/tracks/javascript">Javascript</a>, as well as just
enough =
<a href=3D"http://ca.php.net/tut.php";>PHP</a> to work with the <a
ttp://www.wordpress.org">Wordpress</a> Content Management System. No prior=
technical knowledge is required for this, but you will need to be willing =
to challenge yourself to learn a few tricks and principles of web
ng. The payoff for that effort is huge: a chance to contribute in a meanin=
gful way to historical discourse beyond the walls of the University, and
explore the frontiers of historical communication in the process. </p> <=
