Then they must be using the system default, which for most processors is UTF-8 or UTF-16. >Does the DTD file 'inherits' its encoding from the enclosing xml document ? No, each entity has its own responsibility for declaring the character set for that resource: T:\ftemp>type abc.dtd <?xml version="1.0" encoding="US-ASCII"?> <!ELEMENT doc EMPTY> T:\ftemp>type abc.xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE doc SYSTEM "abc.dtd"> <doc/> T:\ftemp>xml abc.xml No validation errors. T:\ftemp> I hope this helps. . . . . . . . .
