Errors parsing Japanese chars

I am trying to use xerces-c SAX parser to parse japanese characters. I
have a <?xml... utf-8> line in the xml file. When the parser
encounters the jap characters it throws a UTFDataFormatEx ception.
I am quite new to xml and I am not sure how to deal with this
Is there a way to parse the jap characters ? or should the japanese
characters be escaped in the xml file (i.e. &#1234) for this to work.

Seems to be indicating that the Japanese characters are not in fact
encided in utf-8, then.

Irrespective of xml or not xml, any text file needs to be accompanied
with information on its encoding if it's to be reliably read. (Modulo
some heuristics which claim to auto-recognise a limited number of

If I've understood what you're reporting, it's not a matter of
_parsing_ them, it's a matter of understanding them in the first
or should the japanese
characters be escaped in the xml file (i.e. &#1234) for this to work.

Not necessarily. And indeed it's a most inefficent way to represent
them if a large quantity of CJK text is involved. But yes, it's
certainly a legal possibility.

Can you view your data (e.g as plain text) in a web browser? (Or if
you haven't got a web browser, try MSIE...) Which character coding
does the browser need to be set to in order to make sense of the
Japanese? (You might try its auto recognition options and if it's
successful, then check to see which encoding it has chosen).

Then, if the encoding is one that's supported by the parser software,
just nominate it on the <?xml... thingy.

hope this helps.

[1] or of course the BOM, if you know for a fact that it's
a unicode encoding that you're dealing with.

I'm working on a client/server app that seems to work fine in OS Firefox and Windows IE and Firefox. However, in OS X Safari, although the UI/communications themselves work fine, if the characters getting sent back and forth are in Japanese they come back from the server "moji bake" (corrupted). Anybody have any ideas why this might work differently in Safari than in Firefox or IE?
