The better encoding for XML files is UTF-8.
If you're writting a text file,  the default encoding is ISO-8859-1 and it's 
not probably adapted in you case.
Amaya allows one to change the encoding, but that works if the whole document 
has been writting with this encoding or a compatible encoding.

Thot was our initial  research prototype able to manage a large set of 
structured documents. There is a link in 
http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/Overview.html
to http://opera.inrialpes.fr/Thot.en.html

Thot is an Egyptian god associated to arts and sciences.
