[oXygen-user] Author mode doesn't support accented letters in selectors

At this time the parser we use does not interpret correctly the @charset 
specification. The workaround is to escape the characters that are out 
of the basic Latin character set. See 

For instance, the ž character can be specified like "\00017E ":

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/css" href="test.css"?>
    <želi> sample </želi>

So you can use:

\00017E eli{
    border:2px solid red;

We will try to fix this problem in a next oXygen release.

Best regards,
