Try following:


$xml = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"utf-8\" ?>";
$xml .= "<root>my ? sign</root>";
echo utf8_encode($xml);


in the output the EURO sign won't show up.

While if you save the php file as utf8 and drop the 
utf8_encode method, the xml string will be shown properly.

utf8_encode() only supports iso-8859-1 to UTF-8 conversion, whilst the charset that covers euro sign is iso-8859-15.
Try iconv extension instead.
