Error description

  • An XML file to a UTF-8 Flat file conversion may fail to convert
    an XML Escape character reference value in the first position of
     an XML element.
    
    For example, if an Escape value of "É" is the first
    position of the XML element, then the expected output is "ミ"
    (accented E character) or UTF-8 Hex C3 89 character but instead
    the output value is not converted and is created as the original
    "É" Escape value.
    
    XML element input: <test>&#201;</test>
    UTF-8 Flat file output: &#201;
    
    If the Escape value is not in the first position of the XML
    element, then the problem does not occur.
    
    XML element input: <test>A&#201;</test>
    UTF-8 Flat file output: A&#65424; (UTF-8 Hex 41 for the "A" and Hex [C3
    89] double byte character for the "&#65424;")
    
    If a second Escape value is present in the XML element, then the
    problem does not occur.
    
    XML element input: <test>&#201;&#201;</test>
    UTF-8 Flat file output: &#65424;&#65424; (UTF-8 Hex [C3 89] and [C3 89] double
    byte characters)
