Before calling XLPage('de', 'PmWikiDe.XLPage'); in config.php, insert such a
There is a catch-22 with the XLPage page: it is first read and then it loads
the UTF-8 settings for reading a page file; but before the UTF-8 conf is
loaded, PmWiki thought the encoding was ISO-8859-1, and converted the strings
from the (utf-8) XLPage to that encoding.
Obviously, since version 2.2.32 the xlpage-utf-8.php file (and the other files
about older encodings) shouldn't be loaded from XLPage anymore because PmWiki
tries to convert them to the target encoding (which it doesn't know when first
reading the page XLPage).
I should think about how to handle this problem and better document it.
