Your attached sample files worked for me using the latest greenstone, on
slackware linux 8.0. (Ie, I could import, build and display that document).

Check the marked up files in the collection's archive directory. You can
check that the files are correctly encoded in utf-8. For me, the
attached document got stored in archives/HASH0107.dir/doc.xml, but it
might be somewhere different on your system, depending on options in
your collect.cfg file.
