Excel Styling & Troubleshooting

Special Characters

Excel documents must be coded in XML, not HTML. In XML, certain characters require different escaping than in HTML:

  • Ampersands (&) should be &

  • Quotation marks (") should be "

  • Apostrophes (') should be '

  • Less than (<) should be &lt;

  • Greater than (>) should be &gt;
