[FX.php List] FileMaker Server 14 and FX.php

Hey John,

It's the XML bug that made the 'FMAlt' datatype (and associated coding) necessary in FX.php when working with portals.  Basically, when using FMPXMLRESULT, it would only output one field in a portal for each one that contained data -- so if you had a portal row with an empty value, everything in the field after that empty record value would be off.  I called attention to it in an early release of FMS11 (before official release) and it was fixed, but then reappeared in FMS12, and remained most of the way through FMS13.  It was fixed in the last couple of months, though the fix is not acknowledged in any of the version notes that I've looked at.  Many of those on the list have fought with it and/or reported it to FMI.  The reason that I'm wondering whether it's fixed in FMS14, is that the fix appeared when 14 was nearly complete...
