When compiling PHP (even as of 4.3.5RC1), it outputs the following warning:
/php-4.3.5RC1/ext/xml/xml.c: In function `xml_utf8_encode': 
/php-4.3.5RC1/ext/xml/xml.c:489: warning: comparison is always true due to limited range of data type 
/php-4.3.5RC1/ext/xml/xml.c:493: warning: comparison is always true due to limited range of data type

It looks like the variable in question (c) is declared as unsigned short. It is later being compared to 0x10000 and 0x200000, which is two large for a short.

I would assume an unsigned int would be enough.
