hi,
I use xalan to transform xml data to html
the xml data resides in a database the code is
something like:
String xmlData = new String();
//...
TransformerFactory tFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
StringReader sr = new StringReader(xmlData);
Source xmlSource = new StreamSource(sr);
Source xslSource = new StreamSource(new URL("http://127.0.0.1:8080/aik/wordxml.xsl").openStream());
Transformer transformer = tFactory.newTransformer(xslSource);
transformer.transform(xmlSource, new StreamResult(out));

but the generated html's character encoding isn't what it's supposed to be
i guess the problem might be that i use StringReader instead of an InputStream, but is there a safe way to initialize an InputStream with
a String?
thanks in advance for any help

In my view,using stringreader doesn't affect much(with some exception)... but it could be better if you tell us what short character encoding problem you face in HTML, that could help to identify your exact problem location.

hi Balaji,
we moved the xml data from the db to the file system so we could use an InputStream from the URL of the xml files
this solved the encoding problem
(the encoding is UTF-8)
