Hey all,

We're making an import functionality for our CMS, and it needs to import some things from a XML feed (RSS to be more specific)... The encoding of the XML is (and cannot be changed) ISO-8859-1, but when we read it, i think that it reads it as UTF-8... Anyone know how we can make the ISO-8859-1 chars work?

If you open the URL yourself (with openStream()), wrap the InputStream with an InputStreamReader explicitly using ISO-8859-1, and pass that to JDOM with url.toString() as the system ID, then you can override the standard XML encoding detection.

If it really is ISO-8859-1, it should start with:so that you don't have to do this.
