This error message suggests that Saxon is using the requested encoding, but you are trying to output a character that isn't available in that encoding. Usually the problem character will be output as a character reference e.g. ꯍ but this isn't always possible, for example if you are using the text output method or if the character appears in an XML name.
 
I need more details about what you are doing and about the error messages to help you further.

Subject: [saxon] how can I add new encoding

Hello
I'm trying to transform using iso-8859-8 encoding in xml and xsl documents and get the following exception: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: Output character not available in this encoding.
 
I've read extensibility.html, but still missing the working example.
 
Thanks in advance,
Leonid Kleiner
