[jdom-interest] Invalid XML character in CDATA

Hi all,
I have a servlet which returns sql resultsets as XML. I am able to add the 
text from the query to a JDOM without any trouble, however when unwrapping 
it at the client, the SAXBuilder complains about an "Invalid XML character 
in CDATA". Specifically the character is ascii 192 -- I believe it is one of 
the chars that MS Word uses as a "smart quote".
Is there any way to send, and receive these characters ( what about 
international characters ) through XML?
