Reply to: Script error in XMetaL 8.0

The map editor has some code that is attempting to preserve the encoding attribute in your XML declaration and it is having issues with the UTF-16 encoding in your bookmap_sample.ditamap, which is why the other maps you are trying don't trigger this issue, because they use UTF-8 encoding.

As we look at what it will take to actually resolve this issue the quickest solution would be to use UTF-8 encoding. I suspect you must have created these maps using some other tool as XMetaL uses UTF-8 encoding as its default (the W3C recommended encoding for XML).
