If you want to load data which includes a definition list (<dl> </dl>) or an ordered (<ol> </ol> or unorder list (<ul> </ul>), you need to escape the data using the tags <wst> </wst> to prevent these list tags from interfering with parsing of the data structure.
Any text between the <wst> </wst> tags will be passed through to the template unchanged (except for transforming Unicode escape sequences). See the fourthAttribute below for an example.
When the Programmer uses WebStringTemplate to output a Data Interface Definition file, <wst> </wst> are automatically inserted around every data item so that the data strings will be read back in exactly as output.
When editing the Data Interface Definition file by hand, if you ever need to put the character sequence </wst> into a data item then use the character sequence \u003C/wst> instead. Due to the Unicode escape encoding used for non ISO-8859-1 characters, you need to escape any \ characters by replacing them with \\ when editing by hand. Both the </wst> and the \ escaping is done automatically when WebStringTemplates is used to output a Data Interface Definition file.
All this text is ignored. Typically you would put explanatory notes about
the attributes here. Although you are encouraged to use attribute comments in
the data to document the data.
You should be able to edit this data page with a HTML editor, provided it respects the nested lists. OpenOffice V1.1.0 does not. Amaya V8.2 does.
