Hi Guys,

I am using xslt(mapping) to create output xml file.
Issue: target system compline about added BOM character.

These outputs configurations does not fix an issue
<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="yes"/>
 <xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" encoding="ASCII" omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="yes"/>

Open in new window


I'm using online validator to test output xml file

Some of this information might be helpful, too.  I found that some common text editors will add a BOM, whether you want it or not.

See BOM is Decidedly Not Da Bomb in this article:
