I did copy-paste of your example into the xml using Notepad and saved the file in the UTF-8 encoding. After that I see the chinese characters both in IE6 and Mozilla (Firebird 0.6). So the problem must be in using the correct encoding.
I cannot say however whether the sorting is correct :-)

Would like to know the syntax used to make the above file to show Chinese characters. Since, i am trying to make chinese character appear in XML, have been trying with UTF-8.
