Gnucash and utf-8 : summary

gnucash looks fine with utf-8. Neil's suggestion to write the encoding
in write_v2_header in io-gncxml-v2.c makes a lot of sense.

The error I observed ("é" written with an ISO-8859-1 encoding) was due
to a bug in libxml. I had libxml 2.6.16 on my machine.
I downloaded libxml 2.6.20 and the bug disappeared. The fix might be
related to this email

>From my tests, with a correct libxml realease, gnucash writes in utf-8
whatever the current locale is.

So, there is no encoding problem.
