3> { Xml, _Rest } = xmerl_scan:file(ResultIdx).
** exception exit: {bad_character_code,
                       "<!DOCTYPE BODY SYSTEM
     in function  xmerl_ucs:to_unicode/2
     in call from xmerl_scan:scan_document/2
     in call from xmerl_scan:file/2

The XML document starts with PI: <?xml version="1.0"
It works, after changing it to 
   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

The problem is that this XML document generated by 3rd party SW, so I would
like to fix xmerl code, or use some xmerl option.

I using R12B on Windows.
