[jdom-interest] Problems with language-specific characters :-(

The xml declaration of your xml file states that it is in UTF-8 encoding
when the file in fact is in ISO-8859-1 encoding.

If you change the xml declaration to
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
it should read just fine.

Or make sure the program that outputs the file uses UTF-8 encoding.

Hope this helps.
