    I would like to reference the string in the array “My item 1” from strings.xml. How do I do that?

    oh yeah, that is what I meant. This is how I did it.

    <string-array name="my_items">
      <item>@string/item1</item>
      <item>@string/item2</item>
      <item>@string/item3</item>
    </string-array>
    

    It resolved correctly in Android 1.6

    You can’t. It might be possible to do the reverse: have @string/item1 in the <string-array>.
