You don't say what XForms implementation you are using, but this sounds

like a bug in that implementation. There is nothing in XForms that 
prevents you to enter such characters in an input or textarea.

As a side note, XForms controls are bound to nodes in XML documents 
known as XForms instances. XML supports Unicode [1], which ultimately 
means that, barring limitations of a particular XForms implementation,

all the characters of all the existing (and many dead) languages of our

good old planet earth can be supported :-)
