CHM decoding.

I'm having problems converting a chm file where various characters are missing in the final output. (e.g. — ). I've taken a look at the debug folder, and the html created at the input phase is also missing these characters, so I assume the problem is in the chm->html decompilation phase right?.
The chm has a iso-8859-1 encoding.

Setting the input as iso-8859-1 does not help.

Any ideas? (I know I can extract it myself and use the html but I find the result not as good)

Just a quick update - it has nothing to do with CHM - it happens even when importing HTML of the format iso-8859-1 - the zip that calibre creates contains utf-8 encoded HTML files, but with some of these missing....

Missing characters or special characters shown as "?" in ePub Reader?
The latter dues to the difference between encodings.
