RE: Multiple Character Encodings in XSLT/XML
> If this is not supported, why not? - Any theoretical reason? You would need a protocol that indicates where one encoding ends and the next one starts. This needs to be below the XML syntax layer, because the character decoding is generally operating on byte streams in a way that is independent of the syntactic context (and it would be very inefficient to do otherwise). Such protocols exist, for example ISO 2022, but they are not widely used, and with good reason: UTF-8 does the same thing much better. For example, with ISO 2022 you only know what encoding is used for a subsequence of the file if you have read forwards to that point from the beginning of the file. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_2022 Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
