Hi,
      I have a java porgram that read an XML document from a url. here is an excerp from the XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<items >
<item font-face="Arial" font-size="30" font-color="16777215">
<![CDATA[BON]]></item><item font-face="Arial" font-size="30" font-color="16777215"><![CDATA[* Disfruta de tus programas favoritos en WAPA Mývil en tu celular de Claro. * * Textea al 29960 * 18+ solamente * Más información www.wapa.tv *]]>
</item>
</items>

 The code that's is reading the file is the following:

DocumentBuilderFactory docBuilderFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder docBuilder = docBuilderFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
Document doc = docBuilder.parse("http://65.38.219.91/29960/test/getmessages2.php");

but I got the follwing error when the code have latin charcter like é or á

com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.impl.io.MalformedByteSequenceException: Invalid byte 2 of 4-byte UTF-8 sequence.

What can I do?

>>Invalid byte 2 of 4-byte UTF-8 sequence.

It probably *isn't* encoded as UTF-8. You need to read it with the correct encoding

how can this be possible if the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> say this?

this XML is generated dynamically by a php file, do I need to put something in the content type of the php file to?

That can say whatever it wants. It doesn't mean it's true
