I suspect I know what is happening, though I can't tell you WHY.
The view source function is using an encoding that doesn't match your
actual file. For example the view source may think its using UTF-16 for
some reason, but since its really using UTF-8 the characters are all
mangled. Its just a guess. I would recommend saving the file to disk and
the use another editor like notepad++ which can tell you what the file
encoding is. This is likely just a bug in IE 11.
There are so many better editors out there for xml data, I would just use
one of those instead.
