Damn, still got problems:

Well this is done now in changeset:2834.

It's done with a nasty hack: everything is forced to be utf-8, and what's not, is just replaced ... this is not nice, but I can't find my way through the morass of unicode ...

A slightly more elegant solution in xmlHandler via changeset:2835, but it's still fairly ugly.
