[geotk] Problem with 'copyright' special character when XML marshalling

Hi Martin, thanks for your prompt reply.
Here attached some code. I have certainly a problem of encoding. Why the 
copyright is not converted to ©? Same question for diacritics (see 
spanish words).

I have difficulties to isolate the issue from the whole, since the issue 
seems at runtime. The application i've built generates a xml from a 
template, afterwhat it publish it to geonetwork. For unknown reasons, 
putting the copyright symbol breaks the publication, as something was 
invalid in the xml. If i separate the 2 actions, first marshall and 
produce the xml, then manually import the xml in Geonetwork, it works. I 
point you to the code i use:
- Metadata (where i use the copyright symbol in a citation template): 
(row: 332 - 345)
- publisher (where i marshall to XML and publish the xml to Geonetwork):
