Hi all,

I get some validation errors with german characters in the 
RDF/XML of my OWL ontology. I know that I can't use html 
entities such as "&auml;" in XML but was wondering if it 
is "allowed" to simply set the XML encoding attribute of 
the XML declaration to "iso-8859-1" (which works fine with 
the available online RDF validators) or if I should 
better (or have to) UTF-8-encode all the Literals..

(My app is based on PHP which has an utf8_encode function, but
this somehow only produces binary encodings when I try to 
serialize the ontology on a windows system...)

thanx in advance,

Benjamin Nowack
