I want to edit Chinese gNewsense wiki content, but found in garbage. pmwiki web coding can from ISO-8859-1 into UTF-8 encoding? This
is conducive to edit multilingual content (eg: Chinese), not garbled.

Excuse me.I am not English, I use google translate written.

This problem has been discussed before [1]. Our wiki is set up for iso-8859-1 and anything outside that range is converted to HTML entities. I haven't found an easy way to solve this.

A script like this could be helpful:
- Download $URL?action=source
- Convert HTML entities to Unicode characters
- Open in $EDITOR
- (Edit + save)
- Convert characters outside iso-8859-1 range to HTML entities
- Upload to $URL?action=edit

But we're moving the wiki from PmWiki to Moinmoin, which can handle UTF-8 better.
