Re: [xml] Default Catalog On Windows, Deprecated API

I don't know how much that matters -- down the road libxml2 uses the C API
(fopen. etc) which takes a const char* and does not support UTF-8 encoded
filenames anyways, at least not the ms runtime, so even if you used the
wide version of GetModuleFileNameW and converted it to UTF-8 the end result
is that the C file apis would fail anywyas.  The only place that would
benefit from that are custum i/o handlers that may properly use UTF-8
encoded paths.

Nevermind, just re-read the patch and realized you were building off the
result of GetModuleFilename.   Oops.

Thanks, that brings another issue to attention.

I call GetModuleFileNameA. NTFS uses Unicode. If libxml is in a folder
which contains, say, Japanese Katakana in its name, the patch will fail.
I should call GetModuleFileNameW and convert the resulting UTF-16LE
string to UTF-8 before calling xmlCanonicPath with it.

Hm. But this could make the thing uncompilable on systems without the NT
kernel. Hm. Perhaps it is better to use XML_CATALOG_FILES variable in
the environment with non-latin file names.
