I am not able to view xml file having special charcters ( e.g. São Paulo - see the character on top of a) in Internet Explorer. The error message is : An invalid character was found in text content. Error processing resource. <BR>Is there a way to program using Microsoft DOM or in ASP to load the xml file having these special characters. <BR>To reproduce this error copy and paste this into notepad and save the file with an .xml extension, and then view it in IE<BR>&#060;CITY&#062;São Paulo&#060;/CITY&#062;
