Or am i better using the provide string functions in libxml?

You probably want some unicode library in conjunction with libxml2.
The remaining question then is about how to pass data between that unicode
library and libxml2.

I have been suggesting a new C++ API (wrapper around libxml2) on

best to do that conversion (see
