Thanks for the reply.  Unfortunately this xml page was defined by a
different company and I have to use it without modification (I do not know
how they came about MS950).  I will try downloading the international
charset but if this fails is there a way of disabling the encoding check
(basically just ignore this field and parse the rest of the document)?

It depends completely on your VM. JDOM does not add any encodings of its
own. It supports whatever the local VM supports, no more, no less. I'm
not sure what Ms950 is, but it's not listed as supported in Java 1.4.2:


Possibly you mean Cp950?
