Empty elements in XML cause error in page copy



When XML content with empty (blank) elements is parsed (through Parse-XML) and added to the clipboard, the content cannot be copied from the page to another page, due to a property mismatch exception.

Error Messages

Invalid datatype

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Run a Parse-XML on XML content with empty elements. 
  2. Attempt to copy the resulting clipboard content to another clipboard page.

Root Cause

The root cause of this problem is a defect in user application code/rules.
