MSXML for Java Questions

String in Java is Unicode, isn't it?

If I remove enocoding from the XML head then everything works great. I'd
really appreciate if you gave me a bit more detailed instructions, because I
don't quite understand what you're saying.

loadXML only accepts Unicode. Either load the document using "load" from a
file or a URL, or construct it in-memory in Unicode.
