[jdom-interest] XMLOutputter and utf-8

Hi all,

I'm having a little trouble figuring out utf-8 encoding with JDom. The 
output from this sample program is returning a single hex value, \xc9 for an 
E-acute, but according to this page 
http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/00c9/index.htm, the UTF-8 
encoding for E-acute should be a hex pair \xc3 and \x89. (\xc9 appears to be 
right value for UTF-16.)

Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Or am I just misinterpreting something?

import org.jdom.Document;
import org.jdom.Element;
import org.jdom.output.XMLOutputter;
import org.jdom.output.Format;

class JdomTest
public static void main (String[] argv)
Document doc = new Document();
Element element = new Element("foobar");

Format format = Format.getPrettyFormat();
XMLOutputter out = new XMLOutputter(format);
