in thread Converting character encodings

7-bit ISO-8859-1 (also called "ASCII" {grin}) is a proper subset of UTF-8, but not 8-bit ISO-8859-1. So yes, you'd need to declare the file as ISO-8859-1 if you wanted to have any "second half" characters, but otherwise you can let it default to UTF-8.

    Oh yea, that's right. 8859-1 is a subset of Unicode character encoding, but not UTF-8. I mixed them up.

    So one can find existing xml files with various encodings? Does that mean a parser needs a conformance statement as to what encodings it can understand?
