To get a good output, you need:

1- an encoding in EVERY input file
        (<?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>)
2- an encoding for your output in
        if formatted with org.apache.cocoon.formatter.XMLFormatter
        (don't know for others).
        (formatter.text/wml.encoding = ISO-8859-1)
3- a browser able to display them

If not, your non-ASCII chars are translated into '?'
