The Dutch version is in ISO-8859-1. I tried converting the sgml file to 
UTF-8 the first time I did the translation, but somehow the build system 
didn't like that.

IMHO the people who do the building of the Release Notes should have the 
final say in this. If they want things in a different encoding, then fine 
by me, but as the current system works and I am not aware of any 
practical disadvantages, I for one see no reason to change it.
I could see arguments to change all translations to UTF-8 and would have 
no problems with that.

BTW. AFAIK the default encoding for XML files is UTF-8. Other encodings 
are allowed if an encoding header is added, like:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
At least, that's how it works for the Installation Manual.

Cheers,

P.S. No way am I going to use &egrave; if è is acceptable as well...
