utf8_enc/decode enc/decodes an ISO-8859-1 string to UTF-8 and vice versa

I think it would be a good improvement to use Windows-1252 instead of ISO-8859-1

Windows-1252 is a superset of ISO-8859-1, which only adds some glyphs to unused ISO-8859-1 code point.

Added to the fact that Windows-1252 is a de facto world wide standard, that HTML5 is standardizing on UTF-8/Windows-1252 "even if ISO-8859-1 it stated in the document".

That would also fix a lot of scripts on the web, where we see some <92> "characters" instead of ’ (opening single quote, or apostrophe) for example
