I use Trillian Pro and am having a little trouble with the saved logs of my chat history. Now I have to admit, I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to technical-type coding stuff or whatever, but I'm wondering if there's some way of viewing the XML version of the saved history instead of just the plain text Notepad files. I'm clueless about these kinds of things, what exactly is the difference that XML makes?
Whenever I do try to view the XML file, whether in Internet Explorer or Firefox, I get this error:
XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
Line Number 2, Column 1:<message type="incoming_groupMessage" time="1161982916" medium="AIM" from="UsernameCensored" location="chatroomnamegoeshere" text="%2Ais%20amused%20beynd%20reason%2E%2E%2E%20t he%20Brit%20and%20the%20Redneck%20discussing%20lif e%2C%20the%20universe%2C%20and%20everything%2A"/>
What exactly does this mean and how do I go about correcting the error? It seems to occur with all of my XML logs and when I tried taking out the line where it says the error is in Dreamweaver, saving the edited copy to another location so that I'm not messing with the original, I still get an error when I try to view the edited copy. The only difference is that the line identified as containing the error is the next line down.
Could someone help explain? And yes, I know I probably sound like a totally newbie here.
While I'm here, also, does anyone know if there's a way to save history logs in Trillian as HTML files, or some other format that manages to keep the formatting of the text that users send into the chat window (italics, bold text, colors, fonts, etc...) when using AIM through Trillian? Or is that what the XML file is supposed to do?
Many thanks in advance for your help,
