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"?>

<Registry>

            <RegistryType>B</RegistryType>

                  <PhoneNumber></PhoneNumber>
            </GrandParentContactInfo>
</Registry>
      <ResponseStatus>

            <Message>

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

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