Something like this should solve the issue (beware of wrapped lines!):

on mouseUp
    local tInitialXML, tXmlId
    put "<?xml version='1.0' 
encoding='UTF-8'?><identity><name></name></identity>" into tInitialXML
    put revXMLCreateTree(tInitialXML,false,true,false) into tXmlId
    revXMLPutIntoNode tXmlId, "/identity/name",  textEncode("André", 
    put revXMLText(tXmlId) into URL 
end mouseUp

You have to create the XML tree with an initial `<?xml` line so that 
libxml2 knows what encoding you want - utf-8 will give what the 
use-cases here have requested.

Then, you have to textEncode any text you use as utf-8 before passing it 
to the command/function (usually just content, but also attributes, 
element names or attribute values - if any may contain non-ascii text).

Finally, revXMLText will return an already encoded bit of binary data 
you can put into a file - hence binfile.

Hope this helps!
