XML Gurus


Well-known member
I've just downloaded a bunch of text messages from Bluebook (o2's service) and the XML file won't parse due to there being "not well-formed" characters, such as the £ sign. The codes in question are things such as x8D

There are thousands upon thousands of these characters and it'd take forever to manually go through and delete these characters. Is there a format I can use for encoding that will allow these characters?

XML declaration line 1:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Apparently UTF-8 isn't allowing these characters to be used.

I tried changing the charset, it didn't work for some very very strange reason. I also noticed it was mostly accented characters (such as áéíóú) that came up in that format. In the end I just went through and deleted/changed the characters.

Thanks Kier.
