In my attached code...everything is pulling correctly, but I need the VERY first line to be

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

How do I modify my attached stored procedure
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[XML_Reports]
 

AS

BEGIN

DECLARE @title XML 

SET @title = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-16" ?>'
 

DECLARE @link XML 

SET @link = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><link>http://www.mydomain.com</link>'
 

DECLARE @description XML 

SET @description = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><description>Current Real Estate Listings from My Domain Properties</description>'
 

DECLARE @lastBuildDate XML 

SET @lastBuildDate = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><feedPublishDate>' + CONVERT (Varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + '</feedPublishDate>'
 

DECLARE @language XML 

SET @language = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><language>en-us</language>'
 

select

--Non-Recurring header Section

(Select @title),

(Select @link),

(Select @description),

I suspect the issue is not with the stored procedure, but with the table/server definition of the character encoding. Make sure it is set to UTF rather then Latin1.

When I change the @titole to
SET @title = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>'

I get this error on execute
Msg 9402, Level 16, State 1, Procedure XML_RSSOutRobbReports, Line 14
XML parsing: line 1, character 44, unable to switch the encoding

Misread what you wanted to achieve.

Is line 14:
SET @language = N'<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-16"?><language>en-us</language>'

Check the encoding on the database/table?  I.e. what is the character set?  
Could you repost the SP after the changes are made?

Properties of the database have the collation settings.  In your case however, I think the issue is with the directive.  If the line 14 noted in the error message is the language line, While you defined the content as ISO-8859-1 (LATIN1) you are trying to redefine the language to en-us which might be no be required or the Language directive is unnecessary.

Since it seems obvious I am trying to make sure that you altered all the <?XML references to use the ISO-8859-1 rather than just altering the title directive.
ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[XML_Reports]

 

AS

BEGIN

DECLARE @title XML 

SET @title = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>'

 

DECLARE @link XML 

SET @link = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?><link>http://www.mydomain.com</link>'

 

DECLARE @description XML 

SET @description = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?><description>Current Real Estate Listings from My Domain Properties</description>'

 

DECLARE @lastBuildDate XML 

SET @lastBuildDate = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?><feedPublishDate>' + CONVERT (Varchar(10), getdate(), 101) + '</feedPublishDate>'

 

DECLARE @language XML 

SET @language = N'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?><language>en-us</language>'

 

select

--Non-Recurring header Section

(Select @title),

(Select @link),

(Select @description),

(Select @lastBuildDate),

(Select @language),

--Recurring Properties Section

(select [listing_id] as 'Listing_ID',

[property_type_id] as 'Property_Type_ID',

[newspaper_id] as 'Newspaper_ID',

null as 'House_Number',

[House_Street] as 'House_Street',
