It looks like a problem I had a while ago, the error message is the  
same. It turned out that the Xalan version used in Cocoon 2.1.4 (Xalan  
2.5.2) introduced a bug regarding handling of non-ascii characters (be  
it 8859-x or utf-8 or anything in the upper half of the 8-bit range).  
The problem vanished if I replaced version 2.5.2 with the recent 2.6.0  
(this bug did not exist in earlier versions of Xalan, and is thus not a  
problem in Forrest 0.5.1, which uses Xalan 2.5.0 IIRC). The new version  
is available at:

Since this problem is actually a Cocoon-problem, and not specific to  
Forrest, I never thought of filing a bug report. But it might be a good  
thing to file one, both to inform other people of the existence of the  
bug, and as a reminder for testing against new versions of Cocoon. I'll  
try to get around filing one (haven't done that before;).
