Re: [xml] utf-8 encoding and xmlSAXParseMemory

The problem is "how do you know it's ISO-8859-1 and not another

You donât. But if itâs data on the English or French part of the
web, then invalid bytes are ISO-8859-1 with 99.999% certainty.

You can't garantee to not generate false positive (i.e. corrupt
data) which is why the XML Working Group declared this had to
be a fatal error.

I know. I wouldnât use that approach for mission-critical
systems. Mostly, I use it to deal with webpages and -feeds,
which are generally all kinds of dirty and broken anyway.
