[jdom-interest] special characters and JDOM

I am trying to use JDOM to parse an XML file that contains the following
character: ''. However, I am getting a parsing error indicating that that
Unicode character is invalid.
When I print it out in Java:
System.out.println("" + (int) '');
I get 8211.
If I print out its ASCII character in another editor I get 150.
Does the XML file need a specific encoding in order to parse the file? Do I
need to have the character escaped with – prior to parsing the file?
If I need to escape the character, is there a rule that tells me what I have
to escape and what I don't? Also, what is special about this character that
it has such a funky int value when I print it out?
