 I've no more problem with compilation with your fixes. But I cannot
 display Utf-8 characters in apsx pages... they don't appear at all...
 changes to <globalization> in web.config changes nothing...

+Gonzalo, there are bigger problems with the handling of 
+globalization element.
+I used Windows XP, Mono and XSP from SVN HEAD.
+1. If I set bot requestEncoding and responseEncoding to "utf-8" and 
+fileEncoding to the appropriate code page (I used windows-1250) or 
+use byte order marks (I used UTF-8) the file is read but is double 
+encoded using UTF-8. I think at source code level because the "é" in 
+identifier still does not compiles and the output has charset=utf-8 
+but I have to decode it using UTF-8 twice to get the original text.
+2. If I set fileEncoding to "" to override machine.config with 
+Encoding.Default it results in charset=windows-1250 
+(Encoding.Default) altough responseEncoding is "utf-8" and does not 
+show the text as expected. I examined the raw HTTP response and it 
+contains "???©?­??" instead of "áéíõ" so there are a lot of charset 
+3. The value of fileEncoding and responseEncoding should be 
+independent from each other none of the should be used as the 
+default value or instead of the other one.
