+Summary: Problem with UTF-8 strings and Cocoa#
+The attached test case reads an XML file (originally created with System.Xml.Serialization's 
+XmlSerializer) using XmlDocument. The XML file specifies encoding="utf-8". When I pass these 
+C# strings to a DataSource connected to a NSOutlineView, however, the UTF-8 characters in 
+some of the entries are not displayed properly. It looks like they're being displayed as if the 
+encoding were not being taken into consideration. Basically, the .xml file has two bytes (hex: 
+C2 92) where all the single quotes are in the XML elements. I assume that's the UTF-8 encoding 
+for a single quote. In the NSOutlineView, I see two characters: a dingbat of some kind, followed 
+by a lowercase "i" with an accent mark. When the same string is printed using Console.WriteLine, 
+I see only a single character (a "?", but that might be due to my font choice) in my Terminal 
+window where the two bytes are located.
