in thread XML::Parser does not parse the Symbol

Please correct me if I am wrong.

You mean that adding the encoding in the xml declaration as follows in xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

Is that you are suggestion?

    Yes,if the data is in 8859-1, then it should be marked as such. Otherwise it's not proper XML, it won't parse with any proper parser.

    Make sure it is indeed in ISO-8859-1 though, sometimes it is in windows 1251, which is similar to ISO-8859-1 but not quite (some of the code points are used for different characters, like the smart quotes).


      Thanks for your guidance
