Thanks. I am also aware of it now :-). Can I make the assumption that: - ISO-8859-1 and UTF-8 look identical to not-very-experienced humans. - in principle I should be able to sort this by adding something like <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?> to the top of the document - in practice this fails because by the time it gets to the encoding declaration it has already assumed the encoding is UTF-8 and has crashed :-) I am not quite clear why we need this problem. Do different tools emit different encodings? If so, what should I work with?. Can I convert this document? I know there has been lots of important discussions about encodings (which I have not always read very carefully), so an authoritative statement from a WG member would help at least one human :-) P.
