Quick and hopefully obvious question re: SAX..
and sorry for the lightweight content ;)
When constructing a SAX InputSource from a character stream
(java.io.Reader), is it correct to assume that any encoding
declaration given in the document will be ignored?
That is, should I worry about anything blowing up if I parse
an InputSource constructed like this:
new StringReader( "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"foo\"?><bar/>" )
...where foo is pretty much anything (an actual encoding supported by the
system, or not) ? The encoding should be irrelevant at that point, yes?
