RE: MSXML and Encoding
> why is utf-16 essential (as opposed to say utf-8, or even ascii + entity references) Special European Characters don't seem to work for UTF-8 (at least for the MSXML parser). I had a look at the W3C doc and tried the UTF-16 as they said it should be supported, but the at the start of parsing it said the encoding is not supported. I have read a bit now on the UTF-8 and UTF-16 explanations as my knowledge of them isn't great. Does anybody have a few sentences to explain these ? - I am going to look at some stuff at unicode.org as well. Wouldn't explain why the parser couldn't understand the special chracters though?
