xlst xml
It's possible that the XML has been edited using a non-XML aware
editor such as Notepad and has been saved using an encoding thats
different from the encoding specified in the prolog.  For example, the
prolog is the traditional:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

...and Notepad has saved the file in ANSI.

Its pure speculation as ever because the OP didnt provide a failing example.
