I have a DOM model read from a xml file that has no encoding named
inside it. The var TXMLDocument.Encoding is empty after the file is

WHen compiling the program for GTK 1 the german umlauts are shown
correctly, I assume GTK 1 defaults to system encoding (or so ;). The
files have been written in a GUI using the same system encoding

When compiled for GTK 2 the umlauts are not shown corrctly and on the
console messages like this appear when handing over strings to gtk

Pango-WARNING **: Invalid UTF-8 string passed to pango_layout_set_t ext()

When the texts are not used as caption but as text inside a memo, the
warning differs:

Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert: assertion `g_utf8_val
idate (text, len, NULL)' failed

and the strings in question are left out up to the next newline.

The encoding inside the file löooks like this:


for the Letter "ö".

How can make GTK 2 show those chars as in GTK 1?
