Hi I am very confusing with these encoding systems.  UTF-8 and iso-8859-1. Some of the characters are ok with one of the encoding systems but not all and vice versa.

For example this statement is OK with UTF-8  and UTF-16 encoding system  not withthe iso-8859-1 :
"hola mujeres quién anda ahi"

The following is OK with is0-8859-1 but not with UTF-8 and as well UTF-16
"¤H*OL*Ƥ Peluchotes como estan espero q super preciosas me encantaria conocer amigas caleñitas"

The following is the exception which I am getting on, i dont know how far the can helps you.. But it alwasy says like this "illegal utf8 encoding at 0xf1". I coudn't get this 0xf1, what exactly does this and what does this means ??

exception [stream:155: illegal utf8 encoding at 0xf1
