When you generate your XML reply, why not encode any characters whose
values are 127 or higher into numberic character references to their

Then you don't need iconv.

Oops, too late, I'd already read the mail before I got to that.

If it's confidential you should NOT be posting it to a
public mailing list.  Get yourself a non-work email account if
you can't disable the stupid disclaimer.  Thanks!
