Problems Adding Arrows to Taxiway Signs in FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm have a problem adding arrows to taxiway signs in FSX. Specifically, the BGL complier gives an error when I insert an up, left or right (haven't tried down) arrow character in to the sign xml. The SDK says to use <, > or ^ for these arrows, but every time I use one of these I get an error.It's probably some small thing, but I wonder if there's anyone out there that can help.An example of the code (for adding a taxiway direction sign) I am using is:ThanksLowell

So i give my reply as a rooky...label="d<"Should read as followed. Please see attachement!Finally i am not 100% sure you got the coordinates right!I have used this kind of notation:lat="N52.266346"lon="E6.891181"RegardsBert

There is nothing wrong with the coordinates. This is a valid notation as well.As Doug pointed out the problem at the brackets, they are processed as XML tags now.
