Seems to require BIFF8 (has no apparent effect otherwise). So don't omit this:

$worksheet->setInputEncoding('utf-8');
Note by: user@example.com
When i do

require_once( 'Spreadsheet/Excel/Writer.php' );
$o_book = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer();
$o_book->setVersion( 8 );
$o_book->send( 'report.xls' );
$o_ws =& $o_book->addWorksheet( @iconv( 'UTF-8', 'WINDOWS-1251', '????' ) );
$o_ws->setInputEncoding( 'UTF-8' );

Added worksheet have title with incorrectly displayed characters (when passed with UTF-8 cyrillic string). After that when i use write method, all is ok.
Note by: oleoo@mail.ru
use like:

# $newExcelbook = new Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer("sheets/test.xls");
# $newExcelbook->setVersion(8);
# $newExcelsheet =& $newExcelbook->addWorksheet("????1");
# $newExcelsheet->setInputEncoding("UTF-8");

not 'utf-8' !!!
