Are you using the HTML2 (libxml2) parser? libxml2 converts input into
UTF-8. Then swish (in parser.c) converts it to ISO-8859-1 for indexing.
What I believe should happen is parser.c should use iconv() and convert to
a character set defined in the config file.
If you want to store a blob of binary data then I think you will have to
store it someplace else (e.g. Berkeley DB table) and store an index to
that data in the property.
