   Re: [xml-dev] 5-byte UTF-8 encoding not supported

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

We are generating the XML document from the data taken from datbase tables and
the default characterset encoding for database is ISO-8859-1.
We updated the database column with a value containing the danish characters
and had hardcoded the encoding tag as "ISO-8859-1". Still facing the same
exception "Invalid UTF-8 encoding".
What can be the reason for this.
