Im having a problem with encoding, but don't quite understand the FAQs to
know where to go:

I have xml files suposedly encoded with UTF-8.  When I call "Document
document = new DOMBuilder().build(new File(fileName));" the files are read
in with funny characters (i.e. instead of a u with an umlot over it I get an
A with an asterisk over it and a 1/2 symbol).  Is there something I need to
do to the reader to get it to read these files in correctly?

Thanks for your help
