Try the iconv (http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/function.iconv.php) function. Not sure what its support is though, so you may not be able to use Windows1256.

as far as I know iconv work with win 1256 so Fou-Lu solution is ok. In case you have problem you can also use mb_check_encoding and mb_convert_encoding:

iconv's support is system dependant, and varies depending on the iconv library installed. It tends to be fairly complete, though, and is almost always better than mbstring if it is installed.
