Description:
------------
It is possible to create invalid XML file using XMLwriter. In my case, the first symbol of Unicode text was 00 13, and XMLWriter just put it out, so I had to call preg_replace('/^.{1}/us', '', $str) to make valid UTF-8 string, than pass it to XMLWriter.

<?php
$xw = new XMLWriter();
$xw->openMemory();
$xw->startDocument('1.0', 'UTF-8');
$xw->writeElement('root', "\x04\xA0");
$xw->endDocument();

header('Content-type: application/xml');
print $xw->outputMemory(true);
?>
Output will be an invalid XML.

Another example:
<?php
$xw = new XMLWriter();
$xw->openMemory();
$xw->startDocument('1.0', 'ISO-8559-1');
$xw->writeElement('root', "\x04\xA0");
$xw->endDocument();

header('Content-type: application/xml');
print $xw->outputMemory(true);
?>
Warning: XMLWriter::startDocument() [function.XMLWriter-startDocument]: xmlTextWriterStartDocument : out of memory!

libxml does not check the validity of the encoding inside a text or CDATA while creating them.

Unicode support in php will solve this issue as it detects badly encoded data. But in the meantime, you have to use alternative solutions like the iconv the mb strings function.

Not a (php) bug (bogus).
