I've to work with XML-files from diffrent worlds: EBCDIC coded files from IBM Mainframe (z/OS, OS/390) and ASCII coded files on my own PC. Is there a way for working with files from both worlds? I've problems with german umlauts (e.g. ÖÄÜß).

Hi Chris,

The XML documents have the encoding specified in the document header so you should be able to work with any encoding. However it is recommended to use an encoding that supports all the characters you use or all the characters like UTF-8.

Best Regards,
