Very strange.
Characters such as ë or è do not get parsed.

Eg. This fails, giving a ?

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>

giving the reason
An Invalid character was found in text content. Line 3, Position 1 

Am I missing something *really* daft?

Basically I have been converting a company information database from an old
Access for to SQL Server and Ingres.
I went DB -> XML -> DB  for *very* good reasons, using the Cononical form as
a guideline.

Everything worked pretty well in parsing when I removed these characters,
otherwise it just told me the character was not recognised and stopped
