Ah, suddenly all becomes clear......

Get rid of \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}.

If your input file is Unicode (UTF-8) encoded, then it's not Latin1.  
xetex reads Unicode natively, and packages like inputenc will simply  
get in the way. (\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} would also be wrong,  
because xetex decodes the UTF-8 byte sequences itself.)
