Hardly. Except for some feedback from the encoding declaration, which can be handled by a sniffer, charset decoding is a completely separate layer from parsing in XML. The differences between BER, PER, and XER parsing are so profound as to cause the three parsers to have essentially nothing in common. When using XER, is one constrained to a specific encoding? Also, I'm curious about which encoding-rules transformations one can perform without knowledge of the schema: BER to PER? XER to PER? BER to XER? XER to BER? -- I suggest you call for help, John Cowan or learn the difficult art of mud-breathing. jcowan@r... --Great-Souled Sam http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
