Sorry about that, I only package the common encodings (utf8,
iso-8859-1) with the binary distributions.  If you install from
source, you'll get a full range of encodings supported, including

Or just transcode, using an XSLT processor that supports 1252 such as
(I presume) MSXSL.

Transcoding is probably a good idea, I don't think you'll find many
XML parsers which support windows-1251 == cp1251.
