Is it possible to use ANSI encoding XML files?
What should be the header be?
By default, if the xml file is in ANSI encoding and there's no <?xml?> header, java parsers will throw a UTF8 reading error..

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
or this?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?>
I agree. Here's the link:
