Hello,

I am creating an xml string, and posting it via http string.

I am trying to change:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8">

to:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1">


How do I do this?

The packages I am using are:
org.w3c.dom.*
org.apache.xerces.dom

Can anyone help me accomplish this?

Thanks.
