As always with bug reports, include the Xerces version, get the latest jdom
version from CVS and if you can provide a code sample we could run, that
will speed up the response tremendously.

In this case, I would try to use SAXBuilder and see if the problem exists
there.  JDOM has been *very* carefully checked that it will accept non ascii
valid xml characters.  If it really is a bug, it has to do with Xerces
itself or the interface between Xerces DOM and JDOM.
