General Remarks

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.

<?xml version="1.0"?>

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.

xmlDoc.loadxml(xmlDoc.xml);

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.
