<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?> not working in ie

P: 1
Building a site for a client, loaded it up, it works fine in Firefox but presents the below message when loading into ie 6 or ie 5, fine in 7 I think, but the client can not even view it in 7.

So what is going on?

The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.


Switch from current encoding to specified encoding not supported. Error processing resource ''. ...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>

I am having the same problem trying to use perl SOAP::Lite as a client to a .NET web service.

I need to force <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?> to communicate.

Sorry for your troubles...

Have you tried building the page with the problem in IE7 firsthand?

I have not had this problem with code written in IE being viewed in FireFox, perhaps backward compatibility to FireFox works, but not vice/versa.

Try that and see if you have the same results.

In a bit!
