UTF-8 encoding not accepted?

I've made some books with Sigil in which there are foreign characters. The result is perfect in 5 different readers (iPhone: Stanza; Mac: Stanza; Windows: Mobipocket Reader; Firefox EPUBReader; Sigil) but in the Sony PRS-505 all the accented characters are shown as question marks.

In the Sony forum they suggest that the problem is in the source code. But the source code created by Sigil states <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>. This should be enough for the Sony reader in order to show the text faultlessly. Or am I overlooking something?

Thanks!
