This means that almost surely your "non-ascii" was not encoded
in UTF-8. Encode them this way and it will work.

I have extended our local Zope version to support (beside "text"
and "structure") also "mtext" (for markup text). It does not
escape entity references but still escapes other markup.

I have extended our local Zope to support "structure" for
attributes as well.
I could provide patches, if useful.

The correct (recommended) way it to encode your non-ascii
in the encoding you claim to be using. Then the "expat" error
will go away.
