that preg_replace takes a byte string $s and:

- leaves bytes with value 0-127 intact
- converts bytes with value 224-250 to the utf8 multibyte character code of
the corresponding win-1255 character
- produces an invalid utf8 output for all other code points, for which see:

so it's a win-1255 to utf-8 converter only so long as you are confident that
code points 128-223 and 251-255 are never in the subject string.

try iconv('CP1255', 'UTF-8', $s) instead.
