Subject: Re: [ubl-dev] UBLish encoding is not UTF-8?
You might be right with the special letters; I'll have to look at it more specifically to know. If you could share that portion of your spreadsheet with the problematic special letters, it'll be more helpful. Just a bit of blurb on why UTF-8 with UBLish. UTF-8 is a very flexible and simple bridge from usual ASCII strings to future (or some might say present) pervasive use of Unicode standard. To be more interoperable with most other schema parsers, it is still better to have it as UTF-8 unless you know it is a very targeted use with little need for other parsers to process the schemas. One more thing I might say is at the time of releasing UBLish-v1.0.10, the UBL TC has recommended for UBL schemas to be encoded in UTF-8. Thanks for highlighting the issue.
