Thank you, another trick to improve my R-skills :)

I've put the file here (I know quite inconvenient, but since I have no  
space respectively no access to space, this is the only chance to  
provide you the file)


It's an ordinary xml file created with word 2007 with a table, in  
which the values from a specific data frame should be written.

Another step to solve the problem was to set the global option  
encoding to UTF-8, since it is possible to read and sink this file  
without any special encoding options (of course with no  
grep-possibilites at special characters)
Setting the encoding-option, however, didn't solve the problem at all. :/

Thank you for your help,
