We had this problem, too, with German Umlauts: äöüß.
Solution was to put the encoding in:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   gives the special characters but they are ugly two byte
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
   shows the special characters nicely in the source
I don't know which one is better from a technical/forrest
point of view.

Boa sorte com isso!
