DOORS NG OSLC REST API jazz_rm:primaryText encoding problem

Hi all,

I have a lot of artifacts in xml format which have a specific atribute called "description" that I want to insert to DOORS NG as jazz_rm:primaryText. When I GET a requirement from DOORS NG I can see that the primary text is encoded has such:

 < jazz_rm:primaryText rdf:parseType="Literal">
            < div xmlns="">
                < p dir="ltr" id="_1464887777339">This is my first test</p>
                < p dir="ltr" id="_1464887777340"> </p>
                < p dir="ltr" id="_1464887777341">Last line. </p>
            < /div>
 < /jazz_rm:primaryText>

But the description I want to insert is in text-type="text/HTML". When I try to insert the text inside the primary text the server responds with a bad encoding error. Do I have to convert the HTML to XHTML and insert inside the div tabs or is there any way of specifing that jazz_rm:primaryText  will be encoded in HTML instead of xhtml?

Chances are your HTML source is not well-formed. Also, as far as I know, the primary text does not support all HTML/XHTML tags. So you may need to be specific what works and what does not. See here for more details about HTML vs XHTML.
