Thanks for your suggestion!
But my web server serve not only wap browser but also Pocket IE and IE,
and they all use same module(for easy maintenance).
Adding this function in these modules will be a terrible thing,
because I dont need to convert character encoding for Pocket IE and IE.

If I can do it in input filter, I don't need to modify any things in
original module.
