Out of interest - what is the standard approach for displaying some
XML that contains a real mix Unicode characters?

I remember working for one place where they didn't want to / couldn't
pay the licensing for Arial Unicode MS and I had to mark up non Arial
characters to use a different font.

I hope that's not a dumb question... I remember thinking at the time
it was a poor "solution".  I seem to recall something about a future
CSS version handling it?
