It sounds like the parser is trying to parse the CLOB as UTF-8 despite its 
actual encoding.  The character "" is 0xF8 (11111000) in ISO 8859-1, which 
would be interpreted as the start of a 5-byte UTF-8 sequence; the other 
characters you mention are not valid UTF-8 sequence starters.

What code are you using to parse the CLOB and to set the encoding?  I 
suspect that, rather than simply inserting an XML declaration in the CLOB, 
you need to actually instruct the parser what encoding to use for reading 
the input.
