Description:
------------
Trying to remove/convert any non-utf8 character to an html equivalent, x is being replaced when it shouldn't.

The ord value of x is 120. The ord value of Y diaeresis is suppose to be 376.

Reproduce code:
---------------
$string = "x";

echo $string;

$string = ereg_replace(376,"Ÿ",$string);

echo $string;

Expected result:
----------------
x should still be echo'd the second time.

Actual result:
--------------
Y diaeresis is being echo'd out.

ereg_* functions are not unicode aware. Use preg_* functions which 
are. No bug but lacking support (which will never be implemented).
