hmm. something is definitely going wrong in the serialization, but i
haven't got the foggiest idea how to address this. my code is blissfully
unaware of character encoding issues. in fact, i don't see anything in the
entire DOM API that indicates anything to do with character encodings.

what version of xerces are you using? what is the encoding of the source
file? if you include the files using external entities does it work
properly? what is the declared encoding of cocoon's result?

can't promise i'll be terribly helpful as i'm almost completely ignorant
about encoding issues, but i'll give it a whirl.
