Changes since version 1.7.1:
Added a new argument "Encoding" to WriteXLS(). The argument enables the
proper decoding of data in the package's WriteXLS.pl Perl script for
either "UTF-8" (default) or "latin1" character sets. Previously only
UTF-8 was supported. This is modeled after the Encoding() R function.
Thanks to Robert Burns for reporting the problem and testing the fix.
