Description Marcos 2001-11-08 05:26:32 UTC
I recently upgraded to Xerces 1.4.3. The previous version did work with 
Microsoft VM, however the new one does not work  when the XML document contains:

I don't know if this is meant to be so, or it is a bug.

The reason is that the previous version of Xerces converted "ISO-8859-1" 
to "8859_1" before calling new InputStreamReader(...)

However the 1.4.3 version converts "ISO-8859-1" to "ISO8859_1" which is not 
working on Microsoft's VM.

the conversion is made in class MIME2Java.
