Pygments / XML error on umlauts

Anonymous avatarAnonymous created an issue

The following code is not parsed correctly by pygmentize:

	<foo aä="bar">

This is what I get with

pygmentize -f html -l xml -O encoding=utf-8  foo.xml
<div class="highlight"><pre><span class="nt">&lt;root&gt;</span>
	<span class="nt">&lt;foo</span> <span class="err">aä=&quot;bar&quot;</span><span class="nt">&gt;</span>
	<span class="nt">&lt;/foo&gt;</span>
<span class="nt">&lt;/root&gt;</span>

    The same happens with version 1.4:

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
