Charcterset conversion: e.g ISO 8859-1 => UTF8


is there a tool to convert a string from one characterset into another one?

In this case the data is ISO 8859-1 encoded (latin1) and has to be converted into utf8.

Thanks in advance

You first use the stringToBytes service using the default encoding i.e ISO 8859-1. Then use the stringToDocument service and specify the encoding as UTF-8. You will get a node which would be in UTF-8
