UTF-8 is IMHO the best choice to handle nowadays, but well I see the

problem... I think I will modify my patch to have a fallback mode if
UTF-8 file is not present/accessable.

Ok.. I will adress that, too. Did not know that there is a bug report.

At present I am awfully busy, but I hope I can supply my revised patch (based
on libxml 2.6.26) by beginning of next week.

I hope this will solve all problems with win9x and non utf-8 encoding without
adding new api. Would this be ok for everyone?
