The first line of an XML page starts with :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

This lets the viewing browser know what type of coding and what language character set is being used. ISO-8859-1 happens to be the Latin-1/West European set which is the most common.

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