David, I thought Java used UTF-8, actually a version slightly >different from the "typical" version that expresses: Java has come with a succession of library classes that advertised UTF-8 support; the first few iterations were so hopelessly broken that I gave up on them, but I've been told that recent versions are verging on usable. What David was saying is that in Java, the basic "char" data type is 16 bits, and thus is naturally used to hold UTF-16-encoded text. I have no idea if the library classes do the right things with UTF-16 surrogate pairs either in String or char contexts, but my experience with String processing in Java is that it's often best just to ignore those libraries anyhow and roll your own. -Tim xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
