[TYPO3] GIFBUILDER and Czech characters (ISO backend!)

Hi Masi,

At the moment it seems that no conversion is taking place at all. The 
characters that are displayed are the corresponding characters from 
iso-8859-1 instead of ISO-8859-2. I assumed that setting the rendercharset 
would force a mapping of iso codes to the corresponding utf-8 (which are in 
the font). So for instance the Czech charactercode #F8 (248) would map to 
#0159 (latin small letter r with caron). Instead the character ø is 
displayed which is the iso-8859-1 character with code #F8. Am I making a 
wrong assumption regarding conversion of charsets?
