0008076: Wrong charset in export of custom fields
Exporting the custom fields in UTF-8 machines results in an ISO-nnnn-n declared XML file.

When the file is imported back into TestLink, non-ASCII characters (spanish tilded vocals, etc) are imported back incorrectly.
1) Create a custom field named with non-ASCII characters (tilded vocals in our case).
2) Export custom fields.
3) Import the exported custom fields.

The non-ASCII characters are retrived incorrectly with other characters replacing the non-ASCII ones.
The original custom fields named with non-ASCII characters get a twin (duplicated) with almost the same name but different non-ASCII characters.
This bug affects only export of custom fields:
Export of test cases and other items works well, generating UTF-8 encoded and so declared xml, and thus non-ASCII characters are retrieved correctly.

It only affects plain text fields:
Enriched text (HTML) fields encode these characters like in URLS (tilded A as "Á" a.s.o) and get retrieved correctly at import time.

Since 1.9.8 and still in 1.9.16.
No tags attached.
