Ah, OK.... I think there may have been a problem with the processing of \XeTeXinputencoding, which has since been corrected, so the result could depend on the version of xetex. Though I'm a bit surprised that I didn't see any error message relating to this in the original log file.

UTF-8 has always been the default for xetex, though, so there's no need to use this except in the (rare, I hope) situation of needing to read text in a legacy 8-bit codepage. (In general, I'd advise converting the source file to Unicode anyway.)
