Default Page 22 XML in French

I may be missing something simple, but when I try to create French tags with accents (as in the book) IE gives me the below error message. Perhaps it is a simple issue that my setting are English, not French; or is it that IE when rendering XML can not deal with chars outside basic ASCII?
The XML page cannot be displayed

I withdraw the question. I should have checked Appendix A first, though since there is no discussion of encoding in the chapter, I don't feel completely stupid, just a little.

It can cope as long as the encoding declaration is the same as the actual one. For instance try:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
at the top. Then open the file in Notepad, and save it making sure the encoding dropdown is set to UTF-8.

If this fixes the problem but your file is normally created programatically then we'll need to see how you create to see where the encoding is incorrcetly applied.

I've never worked with file encoding before, so this was new to me. Thanks for the quick response.
