Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to
2. Start an export job with the default settings. Wait for it to complete.
3. Download or view the file in Firefox or gedit, or try to parse with an XML parser like lxml.

I requested an export yesterday, which the results are available here:

Expected results:
Firefox/gedit/lxml or similar able to read exported XML.

Actual results:
Firefox, gedit and lxml all choke on the input, saying it is not valid UTF-8.
