Presuming that the XML file has a correct header, with correct "encoding" attribute, you should not have to do anything. If the file contains characters that don't match the stated encoding, it's not a valid XML file.
For instance, a UTF-8-encoded XML files, with "utf-8" as the "encoding" can happily contain French characters, and these will be read straight in to Java Strings correctly.
XML files can also contain Unicode entities, like A85; . Again, your XML parser should deal with these automatically, so they will just arrive in your Java strings.
So what's the problem you're having? [ April 28, 2008: Message edited by: Peter Chase ]
