Thanks, Lars (didn't know you hang out here too).  I've had some xslt error
messages from time to time about illegal characters having this code (always
files I got from somewhere else, none that I created myself).  So I assumed
without checking carefully that they were not allowed in some of the
encodings.  Still, whether they actually get treated correctly across all
encodings in actual practice seems questionable.  Any thought about this?
