I understand that I have to use Biber as a backend to have a Unicode bib file, and on p40 of the Biblatex manual, I read that in XeTeX I need \usepackage[bibencoding=inputenc]{biblatex}. However, this causes the compiler to complain that I haven't loaded inputenc.

I load it with bibencoding=utf8, as in:
