Ouch, UTF-8 ? Many browsers won't like this charset. Actually I'm afraid
the major ones (IE and Moz. -then maybe NN6-) knows this charset.
Moreover I've faced some problems with this instruction inside php files:
the php
parser try... to parse <?xml.... How do you avoid this?

Have you tried this with Moz or NN? As far as I remenber it won't work
with NN4 at least. Not a big problem nevertheless: NN4 does not support
any directive (even HTML/XHTML) for text direction :(
