# Html to LaTex : Trademark sign not converted properly

I convert a xml file to html and afterwards to latex.That's how the xml line with the trademark sign looks like:

Abbreviation="Test&#8482;"


It's converted correctly in the html file.

I tried adding these lines into my preamble file

\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}


but without success. It still gets converted into "â„¢"

I use pandoc to convert the html files into LaTex files.
