How do you encode and send special characters via HTTP in XML?


I have an XML file that I am sending to another server via HTTP.  I am using MFC's CHttpFile object and Xerces XML to do this.  I have some extended characters (from Spanish language) that I may need to put in the XML. When I do this and try to send it via HTTP, the XML parser on the other end has a problem parsing this XML because of the special characters.  I know I need to indicate to the XML to use utf-8, but I'm not sure how to do this.  Do I encode it in the HTTP header or in the XML?  If so, do I use the Xerces APIs or a function on the CHttpFile class?  Thanks.
