Minor apology -- I meant to say "not _quite_ correct"! That case of
externally typed data (e.g. from web servers) is too often forgotten.

Sun's parses the "application/xml;charset=GB2312" style declarations
directly. The last I looked, not many processors handled the MIME
and XML/MIME RFCs correctly.
(That is, it remains really good advice to ALWAYS put XML or text
declarations at the beginning of your documents... even in the many
cases you shouldn't need to do so.)
