in thread XML Simple Charset Q?

er, it's important to note that though the ISO-8859-1 codepoints are the same as Unicode (below 256), the encodings are not the same (values above 127 are encoded multi-byte in utf-8, but values in ISO-8859-1 are always encoded single-byte).

I bet most people in this conversation know this, but it's a bit important to clarify. For me, it wasn't so long ago that I didn't know the difference between codepoint and encoding.

    Right (I updated my post to clarify). His regex takes single-byte characters in the range 80-ff nd recodes them as HTML escape codes. Same number, just a different way of persisting it to the output stream.

    Inspired by that, I showed that the same idea can convert from UTF8 by using the utf8 pragma and the extended \x escape codes in the regex, and meanwhile encode to Latin-1 by using pack.
