Perhaps the software you are using to view the XML simply can't display those symbols.

If this was my problem I would use an editor capable of showing the HEX values of characters to see what values are really there.

it is also possible you are using a datatype on your database that can't handle these symbols.

but I would try Bill's suggestion first, this is a follow up answer.

It's also possible that your database is configured to use a charset which can't represent those characters.
