Subject Error when using XSL with French Characters
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2008 02:22:53 GMT

My Friends,
Fop-0.95   My style sheet has been working perfectly.  However, the user submitted some text
in French.  In the text was a letter "e" with an accent above it.

That character caused the following error:
	Invalid byte 1 of 1-byte UTF-8 sequence.

My .xml looks fine.   The  "e" with the accent above it is perfect.
First line in my XML:
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Here is the first line of my XSL:
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I am confused over why the UTF-8 for the XML understands the character but the UTF-8 in the
XSL does not?

I found an article that suggests that the problem would be solved with: 
	<?xml version="1.0" encoding="8859-1"?>

Would this be a viable/recommended solution?   Do you have a better idea?
