Special characters handling - PI 7.1

Hello Experts,

I need assistance with the following scenario -

We have a xml file coming into PI with special characters in the payload. The encoding attribute in the XML header is not always correct i.e. encoding attribute set to UTF-8 while payload content might have some special European characters.

Per my understanding in PI , If the xml encoding attribute was set to correct encoding type I could have set encoding parameter in the adapter to parse the native characters to UTF-8 which PI works on.However, the twist in the story is the inconsistent encoding attribute in the incoming XML.

Is there any way to read the payload to figure out the correct encoding type and override the xml header to set the correct encoding type at PI end.
