Convert Wikipedia XML data to HTMLtext

Post by capellan » Mon Dec 04, 2017 3:59 am

Searching for another file in my email, I found this stack. :)

This code parses Wikipedia XML data into HTMLtext to display inside a field.

Notice that you could paste the XML data copied from a Wikipedia webpage into the field labeled
"Wikipedia XML Data".

For example, you can copy the source from this page: (The Text field under the phrase:
"You can view and copy the source of this page:") ... ction=edit

Click the button and the XML is converted to HTMLtext.
Notice that the conversion is imperfect, but it's a starting point.
