Well that's reasonable, but note that if the files have
encoding="US-ASCII" at the top then any (and probably many)
XML parser is fully entitled to reject it. There is nothing wrong with
the parser on your one old machine, it is only by chance that the
parsers on your newer machines happen to support that encoding.
Without that declaration (and no other change to the file) the same
files would be processable by every XML parser, everywhere.
