Some requests return HTLM status 400

Hello all,

Although not very experienced with XML / WebServices I was asked to look into a issue where ASP 3.5 webservice sometimes returnes a 400 'Bad Request'.
Along with the issue I recieved an example of an accepted xml message, one with a rejected xml message.

I decided to test both xml messages against the webservice with SoapUI, with which I'm pretty unfamiliar with.
I created a project based on the wsdl copied in the both xml messages and guess what BOTH files gave me a 400 - bad request.

SoapUI validation of both the sample requests tell me "line 4: XML declaration is not well formed" on the first line of the xml I pasted into the Soap envelope; "<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>".

After removing the XML declarations SoapUI Validiation succeedes an BOTH message were accepted and processed by the webservice when submitting the request???

Question 1: If understand correct the xml declaration should not be included in the soap envelope?

Question 2: Why is the xml message reported to be rejected with 400 - bad request succesfully accepted and processed by the webservice?

The xml file reported to be rejected:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

I think the reported rejection has to do something with the ë character in the line
<Name><![CDATA[Ministerie van Financiën]]></Name>

But why is it not rejected when send using SoapUI??

Thanks anyone for pointing me to the right direction in finding the solution to this problem!
