Default » in content property

So I want » to show up in my content property, and doing content: '»'; was working fine for the longest time, then I started serving my page up in the proper xhtml mime type (application/xhtml+xml) and firefox started displaying what should have been the », as a ?

What did I do wrong? Is there some XHTML spec restricting »? I tried turning it into a », because I know those are required in the actual XHTML code - but this just displayed the actual string, '»'.

Also, IE ALWAYS displays the ?, even though it doesn't support the proper mime type (so I serve text/html to it).

The site is

I THINK this might have something to do with unicode character encoding, as I remember reading something about the application/xhtml+xml mime type forcing it... I specify charset=iso-8859-1 in a meta tag, but I don't know if that actually does anything.... in the info window in firefox under 'character encoding' it said 'UTF-8'.

Thanks in advance for your help, I hope I provided enough information.
