Yes - If the encoding is specified in the xml prologue in the file
then the xml parser has to read the file in that encoding - if it
doesn't then its non-conforming.
You may be doing by accident what I was trying to achieve the other
day - parse the file in a particular encoding ignoring the encoding
given in the prolog. How are you reading the XML into the transform?
If it's in a non-xml aware way then you are likely reading the bytes
in the platform encoding and then the characters as XML.
In Java this is a FileInputStream -> InputStreamReader. The
FileInputStream doesn't know about XML and so reads the file in
whatever encoding you tell it to.
If you post some code someone might know the equivalent in .Net
