Re: Malformed UTF-8 char

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "iso8859-1"?>

If you have a hex editor, you can double check. If at the point you are
expecting   you have the hex code 0xE8 then you are probably using
ISO 8859-1.  If it takes two bytes (with the first byte > 7F and the 
second byte < 7F) then it should be UTF-8.

Subject: Malformed UTF-8 char


when I try to parse an xml document with character like "" i got the following error:

org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Character conversion error: "Malformed UTF-8 char 

The strings in the xml document are in Italian, maybe I should use a different encoding?

I'd use 

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
