This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)


XML Encoding on Windows

If your XML document uses the Windows character set, you must set the encoding of the XML document to "ISO-8859-1".  Otherwise, some XML processors (like Internet Explorer) will complain about an invalid character.  A particularly common case of non-ASCII characters in an otherwise normal file occurs when the text was generated in Microsoft Word and included quote characters that had been converted into "smart quotes".
