Just so you know, PHP often comes with the "iconv" library
configured that can handle conversions among differing
character sets. See http://www.php.net/iconv
For example, in PHP one can do
$converted_string = iconv("ISO-8859-13", "UTF-8", $str);
which will take a string encoded in ISO-8859-13 and convert it to utf-8.
PmWiki would use iconv for a lot of its processing, but not all PHP
installations have iconv available.
