Does this fix the file?

on mouseUp
   put "/Volumes/Varuna/Books/LWS Pocketbook/lws_pocket_book utf-8.xml" 
into oldFile
   put "/Volumes/Varuna/Books/LWS Pocketbook/test utf-8.xml" into newFile
   put URL ("binfile:" & oldFile) into oldData
   put unidecode(uniencode(oldData), "UTF8") into newData
   put newData into URL ("binfile:" & newFile)
end mouseUp

I just typed it up off the top of my head, so you may have to fiddle 
with it.

If it works, that should give you a clue as to what to do in output in 
the index app.
