Hi Daniel, All,

I'm using the xmlCharEncoding argument of htmlCreatePushParserCtxt in
order to force the parser to expect a certain input encoding. It works
fine but only as long as the HTML document contains no header like

   <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

where charset differs from the encoding which I'm trying to enforce.
Imagine, if you like, that I receive the data from a web server, which
already sends all as UTF-8, declares correctly Content-Type charset as
UTF-8 in the HTTP header, but somehow the document still contains a
<meta ...charset=iso-8859-2>.

I should mention that both htmlParseDoc() and htmlParseFile(), under the
same scenario, do obey the encoding I specify.

  htmlRead... should be preferred nowadays.

This actually concerned the old dusty XML::LibXML bindings, so my first 
intention was to do just a minimum surgery, leaving the dust safely where 
lied. But switching to htmlReadIO proved to be a way better choice than that. 
It does exactly what I needed with just a few lines of code.
