Is it possible to make libxml2 skip an illegal UTF-8 character, and
continue parsing, instead of stopping the parsing at this point?

Just getting a "." instead of the actual character is OK.

  Well, no, the specification is very clear about it, it's a fatal error
and from that point the parser should not provide any more data to the
   Your data is not XML :-\

The workaround was to change everything in the incoming data <0x20,
and not one of 0x9, 0xA, or 0xD to a space, before passing it on to
the libxml2 parser, but the preferred solution would be to have
libxml2 handle it.

  it's probably the best way to do it
