Hi! I've tried to read modificated excel file in example (1.7.1). All cyrillic symbols looks like there are some encoding problems take place. For example: string 'Русский' represented as 'РÑ�Ñ�Ñ�кий'. Iconv installed. Using Excel 2007.

P.S. 1.7.2 - same problem.

Fixed it by myself: htmlentities works wrong with non-latin UTF symbols.

Make sure always to use UTF-8. Then things should work.
