I think UTF-8 is the default and it doesn’t depend on the platform. I’m not 100% confident of that though, I would need to check the code or run some tests – do you have any evidence to the contrary?

Subject: [saxon] Default output encoding ?


Is UTF-8 the default encoding used by Saxon, when there isn't any specified on <xsl:output> ?


Does platform default encoding have any role to play here ?
