* New option, --char-encoding, allows to specify the character encoding
that should be used in the generated code. Valid values for the 'char'
character type are 'utf8' (default), 'iso8859-1' (new), 'lcp' (Xerces-C++
- local code page), and 'custom' (allows to support custom encodings). Note
- that if you use a non-default character encoding and include some libxsd
