I found the problem. In PHP 5.4, the often used function htmlspecialchars()
changed the default encoding to UTF-8. When a page in the (PmWiki default)
encoding ISO-8859-1 contains international characters like "é", they are not
valid for UTF-8 and the function returns an empty string.
This will be fixed for the next version 2.2.40.
