i want to know what is the purpose of
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
this line in an XML file
actually as per Indian Government Excise Departments XSD file for uploading the Sales Transactions Details if I include above line
the file submission fails and if I remove it gets accepted
This line (the XML declaration) is required if the XML Document is to be well formed.
It's purpose is therefore to create a well formed document.
It must be the first line in any XML Document.
