Not able to format the html tag while converting to pdf


I have a xml file from which I am generating the PDF. The xml is dynamic and it contains a field which can be html data. So, i made it to IsHtmlTagSupported=true.

The data is :

Test <and> , &







While generating the PDF i am getting the following exception :

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The entity "nbsp" was referenced, but not declared.

AsposeDelegate Error in main

[Fatal Error] :1:1757: The entity "nbsp" was referenced, but not declared.

at aspose.pdf.xml.Aba.a(SourceFile:159)

at aspose.pdf.Pdf.bindXML(SourceFile:1565)

at ReadFromFile.generatePdfDataSections(

at ReadFromFile.main(

The code template is :

Pdf pdf = new Pdf();

String inputFile = "C:\\Documents and Settings\\Desktop\\testing.txt";

String data = readFile(new File(inputFile));

pdf.bindXML(new StringBufferInputStream(data), null);"C:\\AsposeTest\\config\\test\\My_TEST_PDF_12.pdf");

Attaching the testing.txt

Aspose Java Version 2.7.0/2.9.0 (tried in both)

Actually its failing if the text contains &, < ,   characters and IsHtmlTagSupported=true;

Please help.
