    AS3 Remove namespace from XML

    If you don't deal with namespaces in XML correctly they can break your parsing in AS3. One way of getting around this is to remove the namespace from the XML a using regular expression.

    AS3 Replace Special XML Characters with Entity Names (Partial Set)

    AS3 Convert a Forward Slash to URLEncoded Character %2F

    In AS2 forward slashes got url-encoded to %2F when you escaped them. But in AS3 they get ignored and left as they are. In some situations I have found that this can cause problems. So you can do it manually using this regular expression.
