Hi Guillaume,

  I think http://trac.osgeo.org/mapserver/ticket/3297#comment:4  sums 
possibly the problem that you are having with encoding and 
getfeatureinfo in general.
   From what I can  gather from these discussions is that we need to 
agree/define first of all the internal encoding of MapServer and then 
implement encoding support anywhere that is needed in MapServer. I guess 
this would necessitate someone pushing it through an RFC. There might 
also be a more local solution to just support the encoding at the OCG 
level and solve issues described in this bug. This has limited usage but 
might be something to consider for the 6.0 release, until a 
comprehensive encoding support is implemented in MapServer.
