In the textContext of this XML i find some special characters like ë en ö.
Example : 'Düvelsdor'

However 'Düvelsdor' results in Dücker' when loading the XML a new DOMDocument()

Do anybody knows a solution for this problem ?
Frank.

The characters in an XML are (if not specified )UTF-8 encoded.

You could use a function like utf_decode to convert this to another
encoding, or you should be aware of this UTF8-encoding and handle them
correctly...

I see you attempting to write this message in UTF-8 and your message
headers indicate that the text is supposed to be ISO 8859-1. If you
know what those are, then you should immediately understand what the
problem you are having is. If you don't know what those are, then
learning those things will show you the solution to your problem.

Your response is completely off-target. Rather than just give you the
answer, Peter attempted to help you learn what your problem is. That
way the next time you have a similar problem, you have a better chance
of figuring things out for yourself.

But you obviously can not be bothered with spending some effort to learn
your job; you just want others to give you answers for free.

Unfortunately, you are not alone.

*shrug* Solutions don't fix the next problem. They only fix this
problem, and leave you sitting there, never knowing what part of the
"solution" actually made the difference. That's not helpful, to anyone,
long term. The simple fact is that you're going to need to understand
character sets and encodings sometime, they're 100% central to the
problem you're grappling with. It's time to put on real trousers and
tackle the whole concept because it won't take THAT much longer than
just trying to apply someone else's "solution".

I knew the problem and spend a lot of time testing different PHP functions to solve the conversion. Thats all. I just needed a hint and that exactly what Luud did. I don't have to learn PHP because this is isolated job.

For free ? I already have helped dozens of people for free with a turnkey solution. I don't have a problem with free. F.

FYI, html pages can display UTF-XX but the browser needs to support it.

Sure it can. But that has nothing to do with PHP.
