Package: xmlto
Version: 0.0.18-5
Severity: normal


is there any reason why ISO-8859-1 is enforces and entities used for everything
that does not fit in?
Why isn't the encoding of the XML file used? It has to fit anyway and makes the
output much more readable!

I assume you agree that forcing ISO-8859-1 does not make much sense with UTF-8
input (except for some countries).
