hm, I did some minor tests with funny chars in XML serialized into 
ISO-8859-1 encoded files and they all nicely were converted into &#....; 
  character-entities (which admittedly don't look that nice, but at 
least 'work')

I did not use any polish characters though

the only problem I would expect is when your polish characters need to 
show up in the xmlnames of elements and attributes: there you can't have 
character-entities and thus the file-encoding must just be right...

Are you sure?
I'm afraid this _has_ something to do with cocoon...

pls check
- discussion:

- recent commit:

and give your opinion...

(I am a bit condfused by the ServerPagesGenerator part in this, but I 
guess it's just about having only a piece off the stacktrace?)

but anyway:

here and now you can safely get back to utf-8 on the serialized output 
(and consistently also change the encoding for 
request-parameter-encoding) by changing the 'form-encoding' init-param 
to the cocoon-servlet in the web.xml of cocoon.

alternatively you can re-create the former incosistent behaviour by only 
setting the utf-8 encoding on the html serializer.

(any of the above quick tests will probably tell us fast if this is 
indeed cocoon related or not)
