I'm not sure what this is, so sure go ahead...! :-)

I'm currently operating with string, and decoding UTF-8 into
ISO8859-1, and throwing away everything that doesn't fit.  This works
for now, because Latin 1 in UTF-8 is all we ever dump.

We'll move to wstring throughout our system later on.

YMMV here I think.  When I replaced my const string&-returning
AttributeList, with one where the caller has to supply the string to
copy into, I came out the same (except this one works...:-) )

But then I iterate through all attributes of an element and fill the
result into variables, that have a default and are sent to a

I don't ask for attributes by name.

The good thing about my string as argument alternative is the
possibility for minimizing string copies.  I can UTF-8 decode directly
into the string I use all the way into callback class arguments
(ie. one copy may be enough).
