hi all,
sorry for the elementary level of my questions. i am trying out the sax parser and trying to handle the SAXParseException but, instead of getting the expected result, i'm getting this:
at java.lang.Throwable.<init>(Compiled Code)
at java.lang.Exception.<init>(Compiled Code)
at<init>(Compiled Code)
at<init>(Compiled Code)
at Code)
at<init>(Compiled Code)
at echo4.main(Compiled Code)
what am i doing wrong?
thanks for your help.

here is the xml document:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='us-ascii'?>
<!-- The first xml document -->
<name title="Ms.">
<address type="shipping">
<streetleveldetail> 123 Rajdil Lane, Chowpatty</streetleveldetail>
the problem was solved when i changed the line in the parsing application from:
out = new OutputStreamWriter (System.out, "USASCII");
out = new OutputStreamWriter (System.out, "UTF8");
it's working but i'm totally confused on this encoding bit.
what am i missing?
