Summary0006060: History XML file is cp437 encoded, but says it's utf-8 encoded
DescriptionI'm working on a program to interpret the XML, and ran into problems; Perl's XML::Simple library tripped on bytes 0xAE and 0xAF. Looking at the file, the context called for item quality labels - the '<<' and '>>' glyphs are what were expected, and the cp437 equivilants to those two bytes; this proves the encoding is cp437. But the main problem is line 1:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding='UTF-8'?>

The file is _NOT_ utf8, it is cp437.

Would suggest tagging this as Probable Quick Fix. It's should be as simple as changing the XML writer from encoding="UTF-8" to encoding="CP437". no other steps needed

Not a huge deal but annoying enough

(Another solution would be to convert those characters to UTF-8; I'm not sure if DF is able to do that already, though, but some stuff from [^] might work if that's desirable.)
