Does RDF (or XML, I suppose) have a problem with diacritic signs?  The W3
RDF Validator chokes on the "é" in "République" in the RDF fragment below.

Error message is:

Exception parsing: org.xml.sax.SAXException: Stopping after fatal error: The
element type "locode:frenchFullName" must be terminated by the matching
end-tag "".
