Hi, i'm writing a simple xtext project to parse xml file. I wrote a simple rule to parse the xml files header:

Model:
	greetings+=Header*;
	
Greeting:
	'Hello' name=ID '!';

Header:
	'<' '?' '"' name=ID '"'  '?' '>'		
;



but it doesn't work. When i write a simple tag as

<?"hi"?>

i get this error:

mismatched input '"hi"' expecting '"'. Now, if i replace the double quotes with brackets:

Model:
	greetings+=Header*;
	
Greeting:
	'Hello' name=ID '!';

Header:
	'<' '?' '(' name=ID ')'  '?' '>'		
;



it works! So the question is: how can i correctly parse double qoutes?

Thanks

If you are using the standard terminals, there is already a STRING token
that parses it for you.

Header:
'<' '?' name = STRING '?' '>'
