Most XML documents start with an element at the top of the page. This is called an XML document declaration. An XML document declaration is an optional element that is useful to determine the version of XML and the encoding type of the source data. It is not a required element for an XML document to be well formed in the W3C XML 1.0 specification. This is the most common XML document declaration:
There are two attributes contained in this XML declaration that are commonly seen but not often explained.
