Found this using Google. Hopefully it will point you in the right direction. This seems to lay out what encodings are used by Xerces.

I dont think you can have multiple encoded charaters in a single xml document. If you need the japanese characters, they must be included as an external entity with an encoding attribute for the xml declaration in the external file.
