Re: 5-byte UTF-8 encoding not supported
We are generating the XML document from the data taken from datbase tables and the default characterset encoding for database is ISO-8859-1. We updated the database column with a value containing the danish characters and had hardcoded the encoding tag as "ISO-8859-1". Still facing the same exception "Invalid UTF-8 encoding". What can be the reason for this. "Christopher R.
