The first line may be the XML declaration 
(<http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#NT-XMLDecl>). It specifies the XML 
version and the document's encoding.  If you don't have an XML 
declaration, the XML processor will assume version 1.0 and may try to 
derive the encoding from context (HTTP Content-Type header, ...) or the 
document itself (byte order marks). See
