Problem parsing UTF-8 encoded XML file  RSS feed

I have been having issues parsing files that were encoded with UTF-8. If I save the file as standard ANSI and parse it I do not have the issues.
Is there a reason this can occur?
Here is the error I am getting:

C:\Home\Java\testbed\tmp>java RFKGenerator -in 4874.xml -xsl cl_rfk.xsl -out 4874.rfk
Applying stylesheet cl_rfk.xsl...
Exception in thread "main" ; SystemID: file:///C:/Home/Java/testbed/tmp/2.209_M_
4874.xml; Line#: 1; Column#: -1
javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: Document root element is missing.

)
at org.apache.xalan.transformer.TransformerImpl.transform(Unknown Source
)
at gov.nasa.jsc.odfxml.java.RFKGenerator.main(RFKGenerator.java:89)

As I mentioned before this only occurs if the file is encoded in UTF-8 so I am not sure if there is any extra steps needed when parsing these type of files. I am using the latest xalan parser and the xerces processor that apache provides.
If you need any other information please let me know.
thank you.

I see you still haven't changed your display name after the last time I asked you to. You do realize that not complying will cause your account to be locked, don't you?

I am awaiting a reply back from a question I sent to Thomas Paul before I decide on anything, so I suggest that you inform the rest of the "Gestapo" about this and let "Tommy boy" get back to me.
Oh by the way your post was not insightful. :roll:

"Tommy Boy" did get back to you but you chose to ignore me. Since you think that we are the gestapo I am sure you would not want to be a part of JavaRanch. So I am helping you out by closing your account.
