in thread UTF-8 and XML::Parser

what does 'use utf8;' has to do with this problem? and sure, i tried this with no luck. try it yourself. the quoted text just means i can use utf-8 encoded variable names, like:
$Müller = 23;

    Not really. Try:
    perl -wE 'say length "Müller"; use utf8; say length "Müller";'
