    Default Special Characters in xml

    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;

    DDewan<BR><BR>You&#039;ll need to escape the character using the Unicode equivalent. So to do a tilde, it should be something like:<BR><BR>Sa&#x007E;o Paulo<BR><BR>See http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/unicode/basic_latin.html for a fuller list and http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/unicode/ for a list of other character sets. <BR><BR>Hth<BR><BR>Franco
