[Biogeosdi] OMWS getAlgorithms

Hello Javi,

Can you tell me which omws service address are you using?

The library does escape the special characters &, < and >, but I've 
just noticed that double quotes were not being escaped (fixed now). 
The library returns content in latin1. However, the soap server will 
always return content in utf-8.

I tested with the "official" omws service 
(http://modeller.cria.org.br/cgi-bin/om_soap_server.cgi) and it seems 
to be working with the most recent list of algorithms. I've dumped 
the response and copied to a static document if you want to check:


Maybe you're using another service address with an older version of 
the library? Or maybe there's something doing some conversions 
between the real raw XML you receive and your parser?
