Feedback encouraged. Among other things, I've not explained (because I
don't understand) the role of iconv in all this magic, and I've not
given a definitive list of the encodings supported.

  without iconv support libxml2 has native support only for the UTF8,
UTF16 and ISO-8859-1 encodings. If it has been compiled with iconv
it will use it to support all the set available from the iconv library
(which itself is dependant on the iconv implementation).

I dare to believe that John needs more explanation, for he stated he is not 
a programmer. :-)

Exactly, Igor! I'm a known danger when actually writing code, and
slightly less dangerous but still a high risk when trying to explain

This is excellent explanation, which I will incorporate. I'm assuming
you saw nothing in the code itself that will lead libxml immigrants
