SYNOPSIS

MText* mtext_serialize (MText * mt, int from, int to, MPlist * property_list)

DESCRIPTION

Serialize text properties in an M-text.

The mtext_serialize() function serializes the text between from and to in M-text mt. The serialized result is an M-text in a form of XML. property_list limits the text properties to be serialized. Only those text properties whose key

o appears as the value of an element in property_list, and
o has the symbol property Mtext_prop_serializer
are serialized as a ’property’ element in the resulting XML representation.

The DTD of the generated XML is as follows:

<!DOCTYPE mtext [ <!ELEMENT mtext (property*,body+)> <!ELEMENT property EMPTY> <!ELEMENT body (#PCDATA)> <!ATTLIST property key CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST property value CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST property from CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST property to CDATA #REQUIRED> <!ATTLIST property control CDATA #REQUIRED> ]>

This function depends on the libxml2 library. If the m17n library is configured without libxml2, this function always fails.

RETURN VALUE

If the operation was successful, mtext_serialize() returns an M-text in the form of XML. Otherwise it returns NULL and assigns an error code to the external variable merror_code.
