Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2016-W10

Last week was quite equally split between refactoring and bug fixing. As we're getting closer to 4.6.0 release more people give feedback on it and some corner case issues are being discovered.

However the biggest challenge was strange bug that was reported long time ago - it affected only Italian translation on Windows server. After lot of debugging, I've realized that trying to encode Cardinalità</td> to json (using json_encode) causes this problem. Obviously there have to be more conditions met as this string only doesn't cause it, however removing it or placing x between à and < fixes the problem. In the end I've workarounded it in our code and hopefully I will get to create proper bugreport for php so that it can be fixed upstream as well.

The refactoring was mostly focused on encoding conversion part which is now all embedded in the Encoding class. It was quite simplified and should also speed up pages a bit as it does the initialization only when needed not on every phpMyAdmin's page.
