Sadly, though, such minimalism isn't compatible with sanity if your
texts are in Japanese, or Russian or phonetic notation. Then there's no
choice but to strip your toolbox down to editors that support and
display utf-8 (emacs on an appropriate Linux installation or NT W2K;
XMLSpy, tho not on WIN9x or ME)

Where XSLT comes in is that you can detect broken browsers and use XSLT
to munge the html you send them into a (mis)representation that keeps
then happy-ish. Messy, but it works.
