I am doing a webread that gives an xml document :
url='***'; % not displayed
data = webread(url)
My issue is that I am getting characters like :
"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?&gt"
It is clear that the xml data is not decoded correctly. I have tried to use weboptions by specifying 'MediaType' and 'ContentType' but it did not help at all :
options = weboptions(...
The above changed nothing.
options = weboptions(...
'ContentType', 'xmldom')
The above retreived no data at all.
The xml document is embedded into an soap Envelope liek this :
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="">
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
I found a function from MATLAB doing what I need but you have to have a Text Analytics toolbox which I guess is completely overshoot fo what is required here:
Should be a way to do this with the webread.
Thanks in advance.

I encountered this same problem, and there's a bit of a workaround described here:
and the xmldom structure described nicely here:
Once you have xmlreadstring.m from the first link in your path:
wr = webread(url);
dom = xmlreadstring(wr);
and your XML data, from your url is now in dom.
I am not sure how the soap envelope will effect this, but if you strip the envelope from your xml string, it should work.
