Note that the xml property always returns a Unicode string. That is, the xml property for DOMDocument converts the document from its original encoding to Unicode. As a result, the original encoding attribute is removed. For example,
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>appears in the xml property as follows.
If the original encoding was not removed by the xml property, the following line returns an error indicating the parser cannot switch from Unicode to UTF-8 encoding.
If you use the save method,the original encoding is preserved. For example, if you load a document in Microsoft® Windows® 1252 encoding, it will be saved in that format.
This value depends on the value of the nodeType property.
