Hi guys I have another wiki API realated problem, I want to load some articles in Polish from wikipedia, some of the article names contains special charcters like

? ? ó ? ? ? ? ? 
 etc. When I for example navigate to this URL in the browser
http://pl.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&prop=revisions&titles=D?o?&rvprop=content
it works but when I try to download an XML from this URL in AS3 it doesnt work… the problem is the special characters any idea how to fix that?

P.S I don’t know why but also this form cannot show those chars… :/
