I am loading a URL in IE7 and the response is an XML document.  The XML document is encoded UTF-8 and contains French characters.  The french characters (those which contain accents, etc) display as blocks in IE.  I tried in Chrome and they also do not display properly.

A portion of the XML response is below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<WishlistSearchResponse>
<Registry>
      <RegistryNumber>4122807</RegistryNumber>
            <RegistryType>B</RegistryType>

</Registry>
      <ResponseStatus>

                  <MessageId></MessageId>
            </Message>
      </ResponseStatus>
</WishlistSearchResponse>

Any idea of what I can do to view these characters?
