I get:

Line 35
Column 75
An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0xfa) was found in the element
content of the document. 

By default, XML assumes that your document is using the encoding UTF-8,
which means all characters with accents must encoded on more than one
byte. Given that you don't want to do that, I suggest to put an XML
declaration at the beginning of your file:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?>

(I guess ISO-8859-1 contains your characters)
or to escape them using entities. See 
http://web.yost.com/Computers/htmlchars/html40charsbyname.html

The entities defined in HTML 4.0 are also reused in XHTML so you should
be able to use them,

Philippe
