Subject Xerces parsing - how to get the character set ?
Date Thu, 20 Apr 2000 19:22:19 GMT
I'm not sure this is the right list to ask this question, please don't
hesitate to redirect me to the right list...

When I'm parsing a document with an character set encoding 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
Xerces handles the char set properly. 

Nevertheless, once it's parsed, how can I know what character set this
document is using - and how can I re-export my "org.w3c.dom.Document"
tree into a stream (or file) with the right character set ?
If I don't set the right character set, I may not be abble to re-parse
my document without getting errors...

It seems that Xerces parser is stripping out the encoding information
from the tree - this information is only used and managed by the parser;
it does not appear as a "org.apache.xerces.dom.ProcessingInstruction" in
the tree...
How can I know what charset was used ?

Is it a known issue with the DOM API ? or am I missing something ?
