          1) see 2 and info given?
          2) nope. The mentioned NLS Characterset is used by XMLType to identify the characterset which was used to create the XML doc and/or what characterset the XML doc has. Setting it explicitly makes sure that the correct characterset is used.

          Have a look at the NLS characterset example in the Forum FAQ mentioned in the main page of this forum
          Also, have a look at how NLS works here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/globalization/nls-lang-099431.html
