XML Schema document encoding
- Raised by:
- Paul Downey
- Opened on:
XML, and therefore XML Schema 1.0 is fairly flexible in the character sets and encodings, many of which are not supported by toolkits or allowed by the WS-I Basic Profile. Proposal: For the Basic patterns document we specify: 1) An XML Schema MUST use either the UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoding. 2) An XML Schema document MAY begin with the Byte Order Mark (BOM) described by Annex H of [ISO/IEC 10646:2000], section 2.4 of [Unicode], and section 2.7 of [Unicode3] (the ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE character, #xFEFF). 3) An XML Schema document MUST use version 1.0 of the eXtensible Markup Language W3C Recommendation.
