What are valid entities in XML?

I tried to modify wikka' s language and had a character à inside the description.
Then, the page could not be displayed correctly, and the error was caused by my special character!
So I decided to substitute my à by à but error again.

Could someone help me?
Or is there a simple way to convert all incorrect character by another one that is correct, ie : à or á by just a?
