Hu? There is. Anyway, you are using 8 bit characters like 'á' in your
document, propably encoded as ISO-8859-1 but you don't declare this
encoding in your XML declaration as you should (or must, depending on
the XML 1.0 errata). Appropriate would be something like

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding='iso-8859-1'?>
