Here is a XML file using french characters. It is stored in iso-8859-1 format.

When getting back text node thanks to PHP node_value() function, I get strange characters for "?" (é) and for "?" (à).

I have replaced these characters with &#233 and &#xxx value with no luck. I have changed encoding in both my editor and my xml file to utf-8 with no luck too.

Can you help me ?

Thanks a lot : I'm getting stuck !

Reproduce code:
DTD file :

<!ELEMENT message (title, text+)>

<!ELEMENT title (#PCDATA)>


XML file :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE message SYSTEM "message.dtd">

	<title>Ajout d'un mot-cl?</title>
	<text name="keywordNotFound">Ce mot-cl? n'existe plus</text>
	<text name="keywordAlreadyFound">Ce mot-cl? existe d?j?</text>


Expected result:
Ajout d'un mot-cl?

Actual result:
Ajout d'un mot cl&Atild;&copy;

&Atild; and &copy; stand for the real characters I get (I copy-paste them here...)
