Kana characters? (was Re: [jdom-interest] HELP!)

I believe that the XML APIs like JDOM, XOM and similar do notimplement their own UTF-8 or any other encoding and useJava-implemented encodings instead. And I believe that modern JavaUnicode implementation is based on Unicode 4.0 and Kanji is one ofimplemented scripts. So it should work.

I don't see anything extraordinary in creating an XML file with suchcharacters. You can just paste them from webpages to your Java editor,I believe. However, if your default system encoding is not UTF-8, youshould use a switch when compiling:
javac -encoding utf8 Utf8Test.java
If you have an XML file encoded with UTF-8, you can omit the encodingin the declaration - it is by default UTF-8. However if you use lotsof non-standard characters (for example, from outside of BMP), I wouldconsider using UTF-16 to decrease the file size.
To be strict, glyphs are graphical representations of characters.UTF-8 and other encodings only encode Unicode character codes assequences of bytes. Even if you can process the characters using JDOMyou may be still unable to see them due to missing fonts, for example.
