In XML you can use *all* the characters > provided by Unicode; the issue here is how to give them mnemonics. -Tim At least Tim is consistent: he doesn't have much truck with schemas, so his answer to that first would likely be "any element in any namespace" and his answer to the second is "any entity from Unicode" :-) So that gives four positions: * dump entities * support the standard entities (with default or typical or standard or unified mappings) * give names to every Unicode character * provide a better declaration mechanism (that may support PUA characters too.)
