You seem to miss encoding in your XML files - you should be using

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-2"?>

the default is iso-8859-1 IIRC. No idea if it would make it work tho.

guide/pl seems to be using iso-8859-2, so I'd check what setting
they use.

Nope :)
Using the text entities is not maintainable. It's possible to
use UTF-8 tho - this is well supported by e.g. vim.
