You must be doing something wrong.  UTF-8 is the default character
encoding for XML and it definitely works with IE.  It works when
you have the UTF-8 BOM at the beginning, it works when you don't
have the BOM and the encoding is left off.  It also works when you
don't have the BOM and you include the encoding attribute.

The only thing I can guess at is that your UTF-8 encoding is wrong.

I guess the only thing that I am sure of though is that UTF-8 works
in XML in IE.

We're trying to enter Traditional Chinese characters in an XML file with
the
encoding set to UTF-8, but then when you try to view the XML in IE 5, it
doesn't work. However, if you change the encoding to UTF-16 or Big5, you
are
able to view the xml in IE. Why is that?

Regards,

Cornee
