The utf-8 support for Windows was my idea and my patch, so I feel

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.

2. The library became incompatible with Windows 95/98/ME, as functions

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 
on libxml 2.6.26) by beginning of next week.

I hope this will solve all problems with win9x and non utf-8 encoding 
adding new api. Would this be ok for everyone?

  That sounds excellent to me. I didn't expect a new release within a 
couple of weeks so even if it takes a bit of time it is not a big deal,
