error in xml file: Expected an attribute value...
Hi everyone;
I am trying to build my first xml rule to be used in FusionPro as a rule for every new job to choose. But I got stuck on the following error code:
Fatal error: Expected an attribute value; line 2, column 21

I hereby past te xml-code in this thread:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16" ?>
<template_rule name=“Postcode spatie” version="1.0" type="text" taggedtext="false">
<Comment language="en-US">Deze rule plaatst een spate in de postcode waar die ontbreekt.</Comment>

if (Len(Trim(Field(Var1))) == 6)
x = Left(Field(Var1), 4);
y = Right(Field(Var1), 2);
return x + " " + y;
else if (Len(Trim(Field(Var1))) == 2)
return FormatNumber("00000", Field(Var1));

return Field(Var1);

Re: error in xml file: Expected an attribute value...
The message is pointing directly to the problem. At line 21, column 2, you have what appears to be a "curly" quote. There are others on that second line as well. You need to use regular "straight" quotes instead. I recommend using a text editor that doesn't do those types of replacements. Or disable those replacements in your editor.

You also need an ending </fieldlist> tag before the <code> tag.

Re: error in xml file: Expected an attribute value...
Thanks for your answer; I never saw the curly braces but yes, it was probably inserted while typing in Texteditor from Apple... They think to much for their users... Now I use TextWrangler; After adding the </fieldlist> it worked without any problem. Thanks again! Greetings from the Netherlands! :)
