Author

Parameters
text - the text contained in this node, may not be null.
Direct Known Subclasses:
Text, Unparsed

Method Summary
override def equals (x : Any) : Boolean
Returns true if x is structurally equal to this node. Compares prefix, label, attributes and children.
override def hashCode : Int
hashcode for this Text
def label : String
the constant "#PCDATA"
override def text : String
Returns a text representation of this node. Note that this is not equivalent to the XPath node-test called text(), it is rather an implementation of the XPath function string() Martin to Burak: to do: if you make this method abstract, the compiler will now complain if there's no implementation in a subclass. Is this what we want? Note that this would break doc/DocGenator and doc/ModelToXML, with an error message like: doc\DocGenerator.scala:1219: error: object creation impossible, since there is a deferred declaration of method text in class Node of type => String which is not implemented in a subclass new SpecialNode { ^
def toString (sb : StringBuilder) : StringBuilder
Returns text, with some characters escaped according to the XML specification.
