When I'm trying to parse XML files/strings containing scandinavian characters (?, ?, ?), I just get cryptic characters.

I've tryed to set encoding-attribute to ISO-8859-1 and utf-8. I've also tryed to use ä, ä and ä in place of "?".

When I look to test.xml with Mozilla Firefox, Firefox shows the scandinavian characters correctly.

I'm using PHP 5.0.0RC2. May this be a bug?

My configure line:
Configure Command =>  './configure' '--prefix=/usr/local/php5' '--enable-ftp' '--enable-sockets' '--with-ncurses' '--enable-bcmath' '--with-mysql' '--with-gd' '--with-zlib' '--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache/bin/apxs' '--with-pgsql=/usr/bin/pg_config' '--with-bz2'

Reproduce code:
The XML file I'm trying to parse:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
  ? ? ?

The PHP script I'm parsing with:
$xml = simplexml_load_file("test.xml");

Expected result:
SimpleXMLElement Object ( [0] => ? ? ? )

Actual result:
SimpleXMLElement Object ( [0] => ä ö å )

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.
