When I try to read BuiltInDocumentProperties in xls file, accented or special characters are not encoded properly.
Ex: if in title property I have "été n°5", "é" and "°" are encoded properly.
I'va attached my xls file i use for my tests.
When i save my file, title property is saved with wrong characters but characters inside my sheet are still corrects.
Is there any configuration i can change to read properties correctly ?
