You might want to subscribe and post further questions there: http://xml.apache.org/mail.html I just tested this on Windows 2000, using the official Xalan 1.1 release, and it transformed without error. Without more information, for example, your platform, I can only guess that there is no transcoder available for ISO-8859-1, or that your source document is not using the correct values for those characters. The only encodings that are always supported are UTF-8 and UTF-16. > so i replaced in the XML file the german umlaute with entities: > <!DOCTYPE book [ > <!ENTITY auml "ä"> > <!ENTITY ouml "ö"> > ]> > > and replaced the german umlaute with entities: > > <para>deutsche Umlaue: ä ö</para> > > But still XalanC says: > XSLException Type is : TranscodingException This won't make any difference, as the parser expands the entities before Xalan sees the character data for the text node. If the parser can't transcode the source document, it isn't even getting to the internal subset. > What can I do next, why it is so difficult. why cant i just use german > umlaute... You can, you just can't use ISO-8859-1. You might try using the entities defined in the internal subset, and specify UTF-8 as the encoding for the source and stylesheet documents, and for the encoding attribute of xsl:output. If you really need support for ISO-8859-1, please read the Xerces-C and Xalan-C++ documentation on integrating the International Classes for Unicode (ICU), which will enable a vast number of encodings.
