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>
            <FirstName>JARESH¿11</FirstName>
            <LastName>CH¿PATHI¿11</LastName>
            <AlternateFirstName></AlternateFirstName>
            <AlternateLastName>KUMAR11</AlternateLastName>
            <City>CITY 11</City>
            <State>QC</State>
            <AlternateRegistrantFirstName>joe</AlternateRegistrantFirstName>
            <AlternateRegistrantLastName>smith</AlternateRegistrantLastName>

                  <AddressOne></AddressOne>
                  <AddressTwo></AddressTwo>
                  <Zip></Zip>
                  <PhoneNumber></PhoneNumber>
            </GrandParentContactInfo>
</Registry>
      <ResponseStatus>
            <Indicator>Success</Indicator>
            <Message>
                  <MessageType>Informational</MessageType>
                  <DisplayCode>001 -Operation is successful</DisplayCode>
                  <MessageId></MessageId>
            </Message>
      </ResponseStatus>
</WishlistSearchResponse>

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

You are correct.  It has been identified as a problem at the server.
