Well, libxml2 doesn't seem to be doing it for Dia now.  I don't know
what's wrong with it.

libxml2 does the right thing. If you don't have an encoding spec in
the header of an XML file, then it's UTF-8. If you pass UTF-8 data to
libxml and don't ask for another encoding spec, you'll get an UTF-8
header. This is within spec.

Then explain to me why it thinks that the attached diagram is UTF-8 and
misparses the latin1 chars.  Either the encoding I typed in is illegal,
in which case it should give at least a warning, or something deeper is

I don't have an explanation. I have just a simple fact: I CVS updated,
compiled, loaded your file. Save for the ugly font (my Pango is
ill-configured, I need to clear the defoma caches I think), I think the
contents match what you've typed there (you can see the window in the
lower right corner of the screenshot I sent you privately).

Arrrr, my bad.  I forgot that my Emacs now does UTF-8 by default, so those
were UFT-8 things in a supposed latin-1 diagram.  Once I made them actual
latin-1, they worked.  (Though I updated to libxml1.23 at the same time,
which might or might not have helped.)  I'm guessing something in the mail
transport made it correct Latin-1 on your side, too.
