Perhaps you should be convincing your customer to replace the tool that
writes the encoding name incorrectly? I know of no alias in character set
assignments that should accept ISO8859-1 as valid.

ISO_8859-1 or preferably ISO-8859-1

Subject: ISO8859-1 encoding

Hi all,

I need to deal with XML that has this encoding="ISO8859-1", I am not sure
about this, some parsers seem to accept it

I am using Saxon command-line on a win 2008 server.
I am using collection() since I have to combine a bunch of these XML into
one resulting XML

Saxon throws an error because of the encoding.
I assume it is the underlying parser that does this

What are my options to make Saxon accept this encoding?

My last resort would be to have a Ruby or Python up front that transforms
the encoding="ISO8859-1"
into
encoding="ISO-8859-1"
but my customer will be hard to convince to throw yet another technology on
his server

Thanks in advance

Geert
