I had a try with some feature types coming from Geoserver WFS 1.1.0. Ogr2ogr
converts GML33 points, linestrings and multisurfaces (containing ->Polygons->
LinearRings) into shapefiles without problems.

Our WFS is using UTF-8 encoding. When I open the shapefiles which I created with
ogr2ogr all non-ASCII characters in my attributes look pretty odd. I can't find
any switch in ogr2ogr for controlling character encoding. Is is somewhere hidden?
