[TYPO3-templavoila] Problems mapping XML-files as TV-templates

Hi Dmitry,

thanks for your fast support.

hmm - that would explain it :) But I'm wondering why it's limited to 
this. Maybe a hook or some service-driven parser might be nice to become 
more flexible. I'm asking for this, because I'm currently working on a 
flash website that is managed with Typo3.

I analysed the code of my predecessors former installation and found out 
that he modified (not xclassed - wierdo) the html-parser class and added 
his xml node-names to the tags list of the parser. That seemed to do the 
trick though. And because I updated to the latest TER version id didn't 
work anymore which drove me nuts.
As mentioned above - maybe you could provide a hook for manipulating 
these tag-list in one of the future versions of TV - or service-driven 
parser DTDs or something :) But a hook might be sufficient. In the 
meantime I xclassed TV because I didn't want to use HTML, use mapping 
type "outside" and add all xml-tags as wraps.
kind regards,
Franz Koch
