Converting windows-1252 encoding to UTF-8 in Silverlight

In my Silverlight Application I am getting an XML File encoded with windows-1252. Now my Problem it won't display correctly until the windows-1252 string is converted to a UTF8 string. In a normal C# enviornment that wouldn't be that big of a problem: There I could do something like this:

Encoding wind1252 = Encoding.GetEncoding(1252);
Encoding utf8 = Encoding.UTF8;
byte[] wind1252Bytes = ReadFile(Server.MapPath(HtmlFile));
byte[] utf8Bytes = Encoding.Convert(wind1252, utf8, wind1252Bytes);
string utf8String = Encoding.UTF8.GetString(utf8Bytes);

(Convert a string's character encoding from windows-1252 to utf-8)

But silverlight doesn't support windows-1252 - it is unicode only.

PS I stumbled upon "Encoding for Silverlight" - but it seems there is no support for windows-1252 there either?

EDIT: I solved my problem on the "Server Side" - The actual problem is still open.


Encoding for Silverlight is a third party encoding system but only supported all DBCS (Double-Byte Character Set) now. However, windows-1252 is SBCS (Single-Byte Character Set).

But you can write a encoder/decoder for Encoding for Silverlight, I Think will be very easy.
