xmerl and ISO-8859-1, ISO-Latin-1

Hi Anders and all,

I had the same problem. xmerl does not accept all aliases for encodings. I had the problem with iso-8859-1. I think that the "canonical" name would be iso_8859-1, and xmerl accepts that. But it should also accept aliases like ISO-8859-1 and my iso-8859-1. I have patched my xmerl by adding this to line 350 of ucs.erl I reported it to  but I have not received a reply to that.

Regards,
*Erik.
