That depends on the 'raw' characters used, simply switching to
UTF-8 from windows-1252 won't work directly for 0x80 (Euro) up
to 0x9F (Yuml).  But the mentioned sitemap doesn't need this,
it could also use us-ascii or iso-8859-1 (Latin-1) instead of
windows-1252 if that's some backwards compatibility issue.

The page uses one 0x0B (VT) and a 0x00 (NUL), that's odd - I'm
too lazy to check if it's allowed in (X)HTML, the validator
would say so if it isn't.
