I originally posted a question about the SAXBuilder supporting the encoding
format MS950.  I recieved a reply stating that the encoding format support
is determined by the JDK (not the parser).  I also found that MS950 no
longer appears supported under jdk1.4 BUT in jdk1.3 it seems to be supported
(http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/guide/intl/encoding.doc.html).  I
downladed the international jre for jdk1.3.1_13 but I still get the encoding
not supported error:

STUART$java -version
java version "1.3.1_13"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_13-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_13-b03, mixed mode)

Here is the error I am getting:

org.jdom.input.JDOMParseException: Error on line 0: The encoding "MS950" is
        at org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder.build(SAXBuilder.java:468)
        at org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder.build(SAXBuilder.java:810)
        at org.jdom.input.SAXBuilder.build(SAXBuilder.java:789)

Do I need to do something in order to 'enable' the internation support?  I
opened the i18n.jar and inside could see a class called

Also is there a way of disabling the encoding check (basically just ignore
this field and parse the rest of the document)?
