We are using a XML function and there are a problem with special caracter in Portuguese Brazilian language.

When i use the function:

xml_set_character_data_handler($xml_parser, $cdata);

the retrieved data is truncated, ex:

normal(PHP/4.3.11) - "S?tio"

      (PHP/5.0.4) - "çtio"

we did tried convert to UTF-8 and ISO formats, linux language and a lot of things but there is no way.
the only problem fix was reinstaling PHP/4.3.11

Reproduce code:
$xml_parser = xml_parser_create();
xml_set_element_handler($xml_parser, $start, $end);
xml_set_character_data_handler($xml_parser, $cdata);

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.  Due to the volume
of reports we can not explain in detail here why your report is not
a bug.  The support channels will be able to provide an explanation
for you.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

The output is UTF-8 by default. You have to convert that to ISO-8859-1 (from UTF-8), if you want ISO output.
