[xsl] Diacritics in original document

I am working with an original xml file that says <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>.
However, elements whose values contain diacritics appear to be something else (see fC<r in the two examples below):
XML rendition in Oxygen:
Mittheilungen der tauschvereinigung fuC Kr postwerthzeichen zu Elberfeld.

Which, here in my email, using Western (Windows-1252) are rendered correctly as:
Mittheilungen der tauschvereinigung fuLr postwerthzeichen zu Elberfeld.

The text output from my transformations have the same problem.

Do I need to change the encoding in my stylesheets? If so, how? Or is there a solution?
