Hi all,
I have a stupid question about xml, that somebody with some more knowledge 
of the language can answer very quickly I think. In the compact.xml file 
that I'm producing (automatically) upon alignment I found some lines 
like, for instance:

<millepede_constant name="12304" value="0.0 - -0.000625" />

I'm wondering how xml treats the two double - signs. I cannot see any 
complain anywhere but I actually do not know how this string is 
converted into a number. 
Is this an acceptable syntax, to get as a result for value = 0.000625 ?
(I would anyhow be tempted for the moment to replace every "- -" string 
with a "+", by hand).
Thanks, cheers
     Alessandra
