Which encoding do you use?

I would recommend to use UTF-8 throughout your files, especially if you
use bilingual documents with diacritics.

Have you checked your fonts for all the diacritics? It is NOT enough if
your XML code contains it, your fonts have to support it as well.

Try it with a different font, for example, from SIL:

Have you set the language attribute?

Use "lang='en'" (DocBook 4) or "xml:lang='en'" (DocBook 5) to set the
language to English. If you have paragraphs which are written in a
different language, use the language attribute as well here.

If your hyphenation patterns are correctly installed, this should give
you correct hyphenated linebreaks.

Hope this gives you some ideas where to search. :)
