That doesn't make sense. It makes no sense to have some characters in a file
encoded in EBCDIC unless the whole file is encoded in EBCDIC.

Are you using "gibberish" as a synonym for "EBCDIC"? If so, I don't really
understand what you are trying to achieve.

Saxon, incidentally, allows you to use any encoding supported by your Java
environment. Information on the encodings supported by Oracle JDK 7 can be
found here:
