Why not just trying? I just tested it with a telnet session to my
server's port 5222. When I start the session with <?xml version='1.0'
encoding='ISO-8859-1'?> I can send messages that encode their content in
But what you get back from the server is always UTF-8 ... and I wouldn't
expect that it works with every Jabber server even if it is correct XML.
