Only the server-defined charset is possible. (mostly iso-8859-1)
otherwise the connection from the client to the server and the

The actual state is a bit better now (see the problems jeff talks about
in the first link)
Special &#<num>; encodings are now (since a few days in CVS only)

mbstring does charset conversion also, which is independent of phpwiki.
