  Indeed; Maximilian, your best chance is probably to persuade LyX to
leave those poor guillemets as is in the source file instead of
replacing them with control sequences.  The problem is that those
commands do work well with “traditional TeX” but they are ill-adapted to
XeTeX (and rather pointless, anyway).

  That said, it is quite possible to make them work: if you're willing
to experiment, you can try

  1. Removing “\usepackage[T1]{inputenc}” from the preamble, then
  2. Adding the following two lines:


  This is a little hack, but should work.
