WL#2386: Use correct character set in mysql and mysqldump --xml output
Affects: Server-5.0 — Status: Un-Assigned — Priority: Medium
Currently, the mysql and mysqldump command-line clients have --xml flags to enable XML output that is not character-set aware. Either they should always output UTF-8 output (easiest), or the character encoding of the output should be set in the XML prologue like: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1252"?> Always forcing UTF-8 has the advantage that the output will then always be understood by all XML parsers (since UTF-8 is a basic requirement of XML parsers), but other encoding types may not be. this is a duplicate of WL#1587
