This is bizarre.  This is expat complaining that you can't have high-bit
characters in ASCII XML, which is quite right, but I replace all those
characters with charrefs on the way in:

>>> def replaceHighCharacters(match):
...     return "&#%d;" % ord(match.group(1))
>>> re.sub('([\x80-\xff])', replaceHighCharacters, u"a b \xe9 c d")
u'a b é c d'

So what's going on...?

That'll teach you to try to get out of doing the washing up.  8-)
