I'm testing doctrine 1.2.0-B3 connected to mssql 2000 for XML based exports.
We use latin1 (ISO-8859-1) as collation for the mssql server. When i now create an XML export in Doctrine, Doctrine uses SimpleXML which requires the strings encoded in UTF-8, but our mssql collation is latin1. This results in a invalid, non UTF-8 XML file.
