public interface: MarkupModel [javadoc | source]

All Known Implementing Classes:
    DefaultMarkupModel, XMLMarkupModel, AbstractMarkupModel

Used by a the DOM to determine how to produce markup. Delegates details about converted entities and some formatting details. This exists to handle the differences between traditional HTML output (which is SGML based, meaning there can be elements that are valid without a close tag) and "modern" XML, such as XHTML. Generally speaking, for XHTML it is vital that a !DOCTYPE be included in the rendered response, or the browser will be unable to display the result properly.

Method from org.apache.tapestry5.dom.MarkupModel Detail:
 public String encode(String content)
    Encodes the characters, converting control characters (such as '<') into corresponding entities (such as &lt;).
 public  void encodeQuoted(String content,
    StringBuilder buffer)
