I am having a problem trying to set encoding to UTF-16 using MSXML40. It seems that it will only accept UFT-8. However, I have a bunch of data that requires special characters, like the "degree" character, to be processed using MSXML40.<BR><BR>Any suggestions?<BR><BR>I will be crossposting this in the ASP forum, so please don&#039;t give me a hard time :)
