How would I get this to actually write the hex code in the plain text view?
The example posted here inserts the character (not entity refs) into the XML source. I have posted some very possibly relevant information on the topic of encodings here as that question comes up from time to time: [url=http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php?topic=157.0]XML Document Encodings[/url].
If you are saving to either ASCII or ISO-8859-1 and do require your documents to contain Unicode characters encoded as character entity references the scripts included with this example would not need to be modified because any characters contained in your document not supported by those encodings will be written out as hexadecimal character entity references (hopefully the other posting will clarify this for you).
