Reply to: XMetaL 5.5 does not correctly detect UTF-8? Anyone know if new versions do?April 18, 2012 at 7:08 pm
I should add that I've been using a hex editor to be sure there are no other encoding issues. I'm attaching the file that I'm using. The contents should be interpreted as NBSP, but they aren't.
I generated the test file with perl/Cygwin: perl -e 'print “xc2xa0“' > test.xml
The case where this caused an issue for us is a c# program that stripped the XML declaration from files in SharePoint. Since the encoding is UTF-8, in principle, that shouldn't have caused a problem, but…
At any rate, we really would also like to know if it works properly in newer versions, since we were discussing an upgrade anyway.
Thanks for your help.
