utf8 xml problem

i want to read a xml file that is in utf8. For that i use the tool rebelxml.r from rebol.org (because it's simple to use and i'm new to rebol). The problem is that umlauts like ä ö ü ß ... are not read proberly. It will only show something like: ü ä etc.
How could this be solved? Is that just a problem for rebelxml.r? If so, could someone tell me which method for reading xml files is reliable and suited for a rebol-beginner?

Nick, could you post some pics from inside so we can get an idea how things are set up?

Hmm, my previous post was somehow wrongly posted in this topic.

It seems this forum is shifting thread numbers.
In REBOL 2, Unicode is not supported but only passed through, so it depends if UTF-8 works. Do you get the wrong output in the GUI? If you just read a file, process it, and write a file back, Unicode usually works.
If you don't need a GUI, it would be better to use REBOL 3, because it understands UTF-8.

Thank you,
yes I do get the wrong output in the Console, but the problem is still there, when I write directly in a file.
Therefore I will try Rebol 3, but as a beginner it could be hard for me to find my way into it.
thanks anyhow!

I am aware of the issue with responses occasionally appearing in incorrect topics. I'll fix it in the very near future (just need a few minutes...). I'll also add a permalink option, since links are currently shifting as new posts are added.

This forum's incorrect topic posting bug should be fixed now :)
