I have an application with some ajax functions. In one of these the servers answer something like this:

So this is evaluated like this:

This works ok on firefox, but on IE it fails. I've been debugging it fails when this is present:

If you take a look, there is some javascrip in there which is evaluated later. Is there something wrong with the XML? Or is it a problem of the internet explorer?

Thanks for you time.

It's done..
It was because of this:

Calefon para 2 ba�eras a la vez

The problem was in the �. I guess Bill never expected some who speaks Spanish to parse an XML .

I had a problem like that with Swedish. I changed the charset for the page to ISO-8859-1. It worked for Swedish. I don't know what works for Spanish. But I did a google search on the word donde, and found examples with both ISO-8859-1 and utf-8.

Going back to my old website work (Swedish), I see that I used utf-16; I don't know why 16; 8 probably would have been sufficient. I also realized that � shows up in this page alright. It uses the ISO-8859-1 charset.

Correlation does not prove causality.
I agree. Here's the link:
