Using literal unicode character, not character reference, in

I’m trying to use a literal unicode character in an XQuery, rather than a character reference.

For example, the following will work:

where starts-with($q/name, “Ç”)

but I would like to be able to use (I can’t get this to work):

where starts-with($q/name, "

There should be no problem using this (and other unicode) characters literally, when the _encoding parameter of the request matches the actual encoding used for the query string.

When using the interactive interface, make sure that the “Encoding” field specifies the same encoding that is assumed by the browser (e.g. for IE, see View->Encoding).
