HTMLDocument::readFromString - Convert a String to HTML
Void readFromString( ElementTree location, String input, WhiteList safety, Doctype doctype )
location The location in the document to append the converted String input The String to convert safety The allowed elements and attributes doctype The document type of the input string. This is independent of the document type of the document and controls certain aspects of parsing - for example, if the doctype is HTML4Strict , the end tags for p or td elements may be omitted, and the code will be case- insensitive.
Convert a String to HTML. An Exception will be thrown if the parser cannot construct an unambiguous tree from the string, and it is considerably less forgiving than the parsers in most web browsers. (On the other hand, it's a bit more forgiving in places than a strict XML parser, especially if the HTML4Strict doctype is used). As usual, parsing with XHTML strictness will be quicker. Read the HTMLDocument.WhiteList (3kaya) documentation for important information on safety when converting these Strings If you need to read poor-quality HTML, you can use the TagSoup setting for the doctype parameter, but this will be somewhat slower - if you're writing the HTML yourself it's much more efficient to write good quality code in the first place. This parsing model rarely throws an Exception (though it is still possible on very poor code) str = "<p>This is a <strong>crucial</strong> paragraph</p>"; readFromString(parent,str,AllElements(Safe),HTML4Strict);
