This is the first file which does not use Latin-1 or US-ASCII as its encoding. It breaks the whole system, since the Python library, like expat, apparently does not recognize Latin-2 (which wasn't indicated, anyway). 

I suggest:

- all XML files to display the proper PI:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
- all encodings to be US-ASCII, ISO-8859-1 or UTF-8, because 
  they are the only ones understood by typical "potato" XML tools.

In the future:

- all XML files to have a proper DOCTYPE so they can be validated.
- details on debian-sgml.

PS: why commits by Michael are "From: Adam di Carlo"? A side-effect from CVS guest accounts? In any case, if a CVS expert can fix that...
