Comment (by nbachiyski):

 Replying to [comment:1 DD32]:
 > the ü entity is a valid entity, however appears to not be included
 in the refence list which the XML parser is using.
 > WP includes a function ent2ncr() which would convert ü to ü,
 would that be a valid solution for this? Or is this not a 'real' problem
 with WordPress, and the XML parser isnt reconising the non-english

 The only named entities part of the XML standard are quot, amp, apo, gt
 and lt, all the others are part of HTML's DTD. {{{ent2ncr}}} was
 introduced exactly for this reason: {{{add_filter('the_content_rss',
 'ent2ncr', 8);}}}

 Wrapping all translations in {{{ent2ncr()}}} will do the trick, but I will
 think of a more general solution. Next time we will surely forget to add
