      Description

      QtWebEngine defaults to using the system's libxml if it's available.

      However, if it's built without ICU support (like on Archlinux, or probably others), it will break with iso-8859-15 encoded XML, like this page or this example:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="windows-1251"?>
      <test />
      

      See this relevant Chromium bug.

      Maybe QtWebEngine should default to using Chromium's copy unless configured otherwise?
