Reported by Ahmed El-Mahmoudy in Freshmeat:

2] When I ran: gnochm, then I opened the arabic CHM
file from the File menu, it did NOT crash. The main
pane was empty (saying Loading...), yet in the contents
pane, it did display the contents, but in wierd
character set. (ie. not arabic characters)

% About the content pane, could you point
% me to a file that fails?

    The contents file for this archive looks very odd, I am not
    sure how I should process it. The gtk tree view is showing
    exactly what is in the file, which contains for example an
    entry like this:
    <param name="Name"
    value="&atilde;&Igrave;&atilde;&aelig;&Uacute;
    &atilde;&Auml;&aacute;&Yacute;&Ccedil;&Ecirc;
    &Ccedil;&aacute;&Ocirc;&iacute;&Icirc;
    &Ccedil;&aacute;&Egrave;&Ecirc;&Ccedil;&Ntilde;">

    Any ideas how to properly process this into arabic????
    (complete file is attached)

    Thanks - I know what is causing the problem, and how to fix it,
    but it will conflict with another fix I did for 0.9.3. It
    will take a
    while for me to work out a nice way to make the two fixes to
    coexist.
