Hmm. An XHTML document with encoding="utf-8" should not have "swedish
national characters" in it, should it? Upon reading the file, Emacs
will set its coding system to mule-utf-8, so it's no surprise than
high-bit, non-valid utf8 byte sequences appear as \xxx...

I've created a document with your header, and put an "É" in it with
notepad. Emacs shows this char as \311. I would not consider this an
error :)
