The XML-RPC client and server classes have get/set Encoding methods.

I have just checked and as of version 2.0 the default encoding is UTF8.

Are you implementing your own XML-RPC client? If so you need to use a  
proper XML parser which will take care of the character references  
for you.

If you are using the Apache XML-RPC implementation for client and  
server then you really don;t need to worry about the encoding - your  
Unicode strings will arrive unchanged. This should also be true if  
you are using any other XML-RPC implementation, however there are a  
lot of implementations out there and some may not be very good at  
handling the full Unicode character set.
