How to create Entity in XML
In this article I have describe about create XML Entity.
How to use entity in XML
An entity is created XML syntax and created by the Document Type Definition (DTD). If we have define a entity in DTD then we use XML documents.
Syntax of defining XML Entity code
- When we define entity then we use <!ENTITY entity Name or definition name.
- Entity name is define the name of entity and definition is define the definition of entity.
|<!ENTITY intro "Hello I am MCN Solution">
The name of the entity is intro, and definition of entity is "Hello I am MCN Solution".
Using your entity
When we use entity, we also write entity in DTD, and represent by the &entity-name.
<!DOCTYPE tutorials [
<!ENTITY footer "Hello I am MCN Solution!">
In this example we want to repeat some text "Hello I am MCN Solution" in our output.
Entity "footer" is created &footer to represent the text show for every time.
If you want to change the text then we change it in one place-the definition.
&footer use to print the message for any position.
