Details

We set the encoding in the XML declaration to ISO-8859-1, but I didn't notice
any place where we enfore that. Bad things could possibly happen if some other
encoding was actually used.

I am investigating to use mozilla in some small intranet XUL application and I'm
checking for a possibility using XML-RPC to exchange data with PHP server.
Because I'm from Poland (ISO-8859-2 area), if this bug is real, I will not be
able to use Mozilla's XML-RPC.
Just writing this comment to make sure - maybe this bug is invalid, or already
fixed?...

The XML-RPC spec has no ISO-8859-1 limitation, so I don't understand why this
limitation is imposed in the first place.

I've added a function setEncoding() to set the encoding and changed the default encoding to "UTF-8".
