Subject RE: Status of Axis 1.1 Final

The encoding implementation is not looking so great.  The generated docs
have UTF-8 hardcoded in the xml prologue, and yet in some cases non-ascii
characters are emitted as entities.  Worse, the code that has the UTF-8
value hard coded in it trusts its caller to provide a Writer instance which
is actually set up with that encoding -- is that actually happening?  

In my opinion this is indeed a serious bug, but I would not advocate
accepting Jens' patch, as it just papers over the real problem.  Yes, it
will work, but it's neither cheap nor elegant (as I'm sure Jens would
concede).

my 2 cents,
Eric

Maybe Europe isn't a target market for Axis anymore ;).
I would call #15133 a major showstopper. The encoding for Strings is pretty
much broken for special characters.
