[XML-SIG] Missing encoding attribute

My problem: when creating a new XML document, my output document is missing
"encoding" attribute:
<?xml version="1.0" ?> instead of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Linux RedHat 9.0
Python 2.2.2
import xml.dom.minidom
impl = xml.dom.minidom.getDOMImplementation()
newDoc = impl.createDocument(None, u'mytag', None)
Is there support for encoding argument for toxml and toprettyxml in minidom?
(Does not look like it is supported in 2.2.2)
Is there any other way (other than creating a wrapper around these
functions) to solve this problem?
