That's actually almost certainly why the server was barfing on the 
data -- bad UTF-8, not bad XML. For example, IIRC, a byte >127 indicates 
the first byte of a multibyte character, and the subsequent byte(s) of 
the same character are supposed to also have the high bit set. So any 
three byte sequence of the form [<128] [>=128] [<128] would be illegal 
UTF-8 and cause the parser to barf.

So David's recommendation to go with base64 should fix the problem.
