Re: Charsets in Saxon
> .. The characters in the document looks good though (as if > the actual encoding was ISO-8859-1) They would do. ISO-8859-1 is essentially a subset of UTF-8==Unicode. UTF-8 is I expect the common default. The set of characters in ISO-8859-1 is a subset of the characters in utf8 but the encodings of those characters are different. The lower half of ISO-8859-1 (that is, ascii) has the same encoding in ISO-8859-1 and utf8 but the upper half has different encodings (taking one byte in ISO-8859-1 and two in utf8). So If you get these encodings mixed you would not expect the characters to "look good" in fact you'd expect to see a lot of spurious accented A symbols (questions about which account for a fair amount of the messages on this list:-) David -- http://www.dcarlisle.demon.co.uk/matthew ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star Internet.
