[XML-SIG] Encoding detection in the html parser from libxml2

I am parsing html documents using the html parser from libxml2, and if
the encoding is included in the document it works perfectly but if it
is not, I think it does not work well (probably because I am doing
something wrong).

As it is said in
parser should
detect the encoding. So I tested it putting an utf-8 word in a file and
it does not detect it (it generates a wrong string). Example:
reducción --> reducción.

I just use the parser as a SAX parser because I do not need a tree, so
to parse the file I use the htmlParseChunk() function and I create the
context with htmlCreatePushParser().

Is it posible that the encoding detection does not work with
htmlParseChunk? If it is so, what method should I use?
Thanks, Cesar
