Then your document is not well formed XML, and you will have big trouble
parsing it. It should begin with
<?xml verions="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
If you can't change this yourself, you should ask the author to do it.
And if he doesn't want, you should convert it to utf-8 using python's
codec module before parsing it.

The default encoding is UTF-8, because this is what the XML
specification mandates. You cannot change it.
