Can anyone tell me if there are any specific rules about the character encoding.
following are my questions.
1.Does Xalan allow all kinds of character encoding or just some specific encodings ?
2.If the encoding is not specified in the xml file, what does xalan assume as a default encoding?
3.If i do not specify the encoding in my xml file, and if the xml has for example arabic or polish characters,would it still open in my IE?(what would IE assume the default Character coding )
4. If the XML file is has an encoding iso-8859-1 and if the xml is a valid xml, what is the effect of
1. Having an xml declaration with encoding in the xsl??
2. Having an xsl:output with encoding specified?

Thank you very much
