Yes, Robert I was just going to write this to you - no need to do this.
If you wind up needing to serialized this out as xml at the end of
a pipeline instead of html (debugging, webservices, etc) the proper
cocoon way is to specify the encoding as a child element of the serializer.

That said, the default set up for the xml serializer is UTF-8 and the
xml declaration is added automatically for you.  By the way, remember that
the same serializer class can be set up with different sitemap "name" hints
for convenience of different set ups.  If you wanted to have a different
encoding on some pipelines, you could define the xml serializer component
in <map:serializers> as name="xml-ISO" and use that as the <map:serialize

I'll speak for him - he prefers log4j.
