A further small point re encodings, cutting and pasting under Windows,
and editing technique.

If you use standard text editors, you can't safely cut and paste between
documents in different encodings without hitting the sort of problems
that Mike Brown has explained. But if you use XML Spy (and maybe others,
I don't know) AND run under NT or W2K, if you are editing an XML
document with a declared encoding of utf-8 (or no declaration, so utf-8
is default) and you paste into it characters cut from a document in
another encoding (possibly in another editor) then XMLSpy handles the
clipboard in such a way that it transparently converts the encoding for
you. This won't work under W9x or ME though.
