Hi,

I'm trying to use Transformer in order to convert a DOM Node into a string.
This works, but unfortunately it sticks the xml header at the beginning of the string : < ?xml ... >
For my particular application, I don't need this xml header. So how do you tell the transformer to avoid printing it ?

That's my code so far:



Thanks

If you were doing an XSLT transformation, then you would use <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes"/>. So in your code I would tryThat's my best guess.

Bear in mind that the transformer cannot omit the XML declaration unless the encoding of the document it is writing is UTF-8. Any other encoding has to be specified in an XML declaration.
